Arena convenes, trains, and supports the next generation of candidates and campaign staff. Arena Academies bring together future campaign staffers from across the country for an experiential five-day training with leading campaign experts.
The third Arena Academy takes place September 13 - 17 in Houston, TX. Over the course of five days, 250 participants split between seven different tracks—Campaign Managers, Communications, Data, Digital, Finance and Organizing Directors, and Organizers—immerse in intensive trainings in both track-specific subjects and plenaries. Academy emphasizes strategic leadership and management skills, translating political science into action, building data and digital literacy, and creating an inclusive, experiential, and practical learning environment.
The Volunteer Coordinator will help oversee volunteer recruitment, placement, and management at Academy. We need volunteers to help with tasks such as time-keeping, check-in, mic running, etc. The Volunteer Coordinator will also help curate an incredible participant experience by researching and developing after-hours participant meet-ups around Houston.
