Do you know a young person with great policymaker or political campaign potential?
The Front Line Leaders Academy (FLLA) is a premier leadership development program offered every year by the Young Elected Officials (YEO) Network and YP4 to talented young people who are interested in greater civic participation. By providing them with the opportunity to learn successful skills and tactics from YEOs and campaign experts, participants learn the basic skills needed for working on a campaign or even someday running for office themselves. This year, FLLA will select 20 young Los Angeles-area leaders from diverse backgrounds.
Fellows selected into this elite academy are trained on how to be an effective candidate, campaign manager, finance director, communication director and field organizer. Fellows work one-on-one with young elected officials and campaign experts as they develop the necessary skills to become the next generation of progressive candidates, campaign leaders and community organizers dedicated to the advancement of progressive values in Los Angeles County.
