Politics 101

Politics 101 is inspiring the next generation of public servants.

Are you interested in public service, such as running for elected office? Do you want to be a part of an emerging generation of political leaders?

Politics 101 is a program supporting the growth of a strong succession of future political leaders in the Richmond Region. The non-partisan program is designed for community-minded professionals who have little to no political or public policy experience, demonstrate a desire to learn more about the political process and show an interest in pursuing a track toward public service. Participants will meet over four sessions in September every other year. Leaders and experts include government officials from local and state governments.

Applications due by 5:00 p.m. on August 8, 2016.
