Learn how to work on a political campaign and help candidates you believe in! Campaign Spark is a civic education non-profit that helps young people learn about the political process and create real change. Through the training program you will learn about the ins and outs of a political campaign, hear directly from experienced political staffers/operatives, and explore the many and varied career avenues campaign work has to offer. At the end of the training program you will have the option to select one of the campaigns they have partnered with to begin your journey in politics.
Generation Z is one of the most socially conscious generations so far. Many students want to make a difference in their community, but it’s difficult to know where to start. While there are many groups dedicated to activism and other mediums for youth to speak up and mobilize, they understand the importance of elections and have learned that campaigns open the door for the generation to create change. That is why Campaign Spark was created; to counter the lack of Gen Z involvement in elections and campaigns by connecting our volunteers to opportunities around the US. (The organization was originally named ElectUS but they decided to rebrand in order to better reflect out purpose.) This organization has partnered with candidates across the country who are willing to work with young people; they provide education surrounding campaigning, elections and the political process while simultaneously connecting young people with candidates to provide them hands-on experience in the field.
