Tuition is $550 and includes all materials, connections to high-level political consultants and trainers, and meals. Tuition may be paid by personal or campaign committee accounts.

We do encourage all participants to fundraise to cover, or defray, the cost. Please contact us if you would like to arrange a payment plan.

The Emerge Massachusetts Bootcamp has been developed for Democratic women who are actively campaigning. The curriculum is focused on the skills women need to jumpstart their campaigns this year. Only candidates currently running for office are eligible for the program.

If you are not already a candidate for public office, but are thinking about running in the future, we recommend applying to our six-month training program. Our next class will begin in January 2018. Applications will be made available in Summer 2017.
