Ohio trained 28 emerging leaders through its LEADership Academy. These leaders are considering working on issue and candidate
campaigns or aspiring to run for office as early as 2017.
LEAD Ohio has now opened up its application process for the 2017-2018 LEADership Academy to
individuals who are the future of the progressive movement in Ohio.
The curriculum is comprised of six day-long courses offering a comprehensive understanding of campaigns
through interactions with elected officials, campaign professionals, and exercises relevant to running a campaign. LEADers
