The Kansas Democratic Party Political Fellowship is a leadership development initiative of the Kansas Democratic Party. We choose qualified individuals from the emerging Kansas electorate in rural and urban Kansas. In this way we can mentor and grow Democratic leaders of all ages and experiences, fostering an in-depth understanding of the political process to strengthen the depth of the party and build local progressive organizations.

At the conclusion of the Fellowship, each KDP Fellow is equipped to significantly contribute to issue-based or political campaigns and participate in the strategic decision-making and management of local and county Democratic and partner organizations.

The Political Fellowship is designed for those who want to:

Learn best practices for political campaigns
Develop a realistic view of the political landscape
Acquire practical campaign skills
Create a personal political portfolio
Network with political insiders
Collaborate on projects promoting progressive causes in Kansas
Invest 20 hours a month in political volunteer work

A modest stipend is included.  Expenses incurred during the training and celebratory weekend are reimbursed.
