Building the Next Generation of Political Leaders

The Center for Progressive Leadership is actively recruiting highly motivated leaders from a variety of backgrounds throughout Pennsylvania who will be ready within the next 3-10 years to:

Run for office ? from local level to state or federal office
Run an organization ? political, issue, or community group
Run a campaign ? political, advocacy, or neighborhood effort

CPL is looking for emerging leaders ? at an inflection point in their careers – who are eager to gain the skills, knowledge, and networks they will need to successfully reach a career in politics.

PA Springboards: A Key Step toward your Future in Politics
CPL offers emerging leaders throughout the state a two-day intensive Springboard training on becoming an effective political leader. Expert national and local trainers will sharpen your message development and delivery, campaign strategy, volunteer recruitment, and political fundraising skills.

Applications open May 1.
? Southeastern, Pa: June 24th and 25th (Application deadline: Friday, June 16)
? Southwestern, Pa: July 8th and 9th (Application deadline: Monday, July 3)

To apply go to

Our task, as leaders in the progressive community, is to search out and identify new, yet untapped, emerging leaders across the state who are ready for this type of advanced political leadership development. CPL is looking to find the leaders who have never before been identified ? who may not yet know if they want to run for office. We are looking specifically for emerging leaders with:

* A Vision for Personal Achievement and a Commitment to Social Change
* A History of Community, Civic, Political Involvement
* A Willingness to be Coached
