The Front Line Leaders Academy (FLLA) is a premier leadership development program offered every year by the Young Elected Officials (YEO) Network and Young People For (YP4) to 20 talented young people from across the country. FLLA provides those interested in greater civic participation the ability to learn from successful political campaign professionals.
Young leaders selected for the program participate in a series of workshops led by Young Elected Officials and campaign experts. Young Elected Officials and fellows work one-on-one, as they develop the necessary skills to transition into the next generation of progressive campaign leaders. Motivated by their strong will for public service, fellows work with young elected officials and campaign experts during four three-day convening’s, internet conference calls and in one-on-one sessions aimed at monitoring the progress of each fellow. By graduation, fellows will have developed a wide range of campaign skills, and will have compiled a complete campaign book that will enable them to be successful in campaign leadership.
This year we are piloting a local Front Line Leaders Academy in Los Angeles County.
Once recruited, the 20 LA-based Fellows will participate in four three-day trainings over the course of a year. The training will cover a wide range of leadership development and political skills, including how to be an effective candidate, campaign manager, finance director, communications director, and field organizer. The workshops will be led by campaign experts, along with young elected officials. To supplement the four on-site trainings in Los Angeles, we will coordinate one-on-one coaching sessions aimed at monitoring the progress of each FLLA fellow. By graduation, FLLA Fellows will have developed a wide range of political skills and will have compiled a workbook that will help them to be effective local leaders.
We are now taking information for the 2015 Front Line Leaders Academy program. For more information on the 2015 FLLA program please fill out the interest form.
