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.
For six months FLLA works with young, emerging leaders and provides trainings on a wide range of leadership development and political skills. Fellows receive training on the five core competencies of political campaigns. Fellows selected to this elite academy are trained on how to be an effective candidate, campaign manager, finance director, communication director and field organizer. This leadership development program offers intense trainings for young leaders who demonstrate the potential and desire to take on a leadership role within a campaign.
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 convenings, 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.
