There’s no doubt about it. To win key races, North Carolina needs the best and brightest political minds ready to put their talents to work. Even the strongest candidates can’t win these races alone. They need well-trained staff to support them in the tough battles that lie ahead.
In 2013 and 2015, Lillian’s List hosted the Jamie Kirk Hahn Academy to train the next generation of progressive campaign staffers. The graduation class from 2015 is on the ground right now using the skills they learned to run winning campaigns.
Founded in partnership with the Kirk and Hahn families to honor a dynamic young woman and political professional – Jamie Kirk Hahn, this training school seeks to train an “Army of Jamie’s” to further progressive political campaigns and causes across North Carolina.
The JKH Academy is a 3-day intensive training focused on the nuts and bolts of campaign management and organizing. From writing a campaign plan, fundraising, managing your campaign team, paid media, drafting a budget, polling, field, and digital, Jamie Kirk Hahn Academy trainees will leave with the tools needed to hit the ground running in the 2016 election cycle.
The Jamie Kirk Hahn Academy will be back in 2017 to train staffers for the 2018 cycle. We will open application in late in the Spring of 2017.
