The 2016 election cycle is critical for both our country and our Party. After eight years of failed leadership in the White House, it is time to elect a Republican President. To make this happen, we need to build the largest and most diverse group of supporters and staff dedicated to engaging voters earlier and participating more actively in this election than ever before.
That is where you come in. In order to bring together and train the best talent from around the country, the RNC is launching the Republican Leadership Initiative (RLI). RLI is a series of extensive training workshops to equip grassroots leaders across the country with the skills needed to work as professional field organizers.
We are looking to recruit individuals in every state and every community to apply for our six-week, unpaid Fellowship. Applications to join the program can be found HERE.
RLI participants will come out of this program trained, battle-tested, and ready for the 2016 campaign. They will play a crucial role in our path to victory.
Still have questions? Take a look at some FAQs to help you decide if RLI is the right fit for you:
WHO SHOULD APPLY?
If you are someone who has always wanted to take a more active role in our electoral process, become a leader in our Party, and make a difference for the future of our country, then RLI is the right program for you.
HOW MUCH TIME WILL I HAVE TO COMMIT?
Experience in the program is available for various time commitments. Full-time fellows (30 or more hours a week) will focus on key aspects of organizing community events, such as house meetings, one-on-ones, and neighborhood team trainings. Part-time associates (15 or more hours), will lead voter contact efforts.
WHAT WILL I GAIN FROM THIS PROGRAM?
RLI provides individuals with the opportunity to get more involved in the political process, become leaders in their communities and help effect positive change for our country. This experience will empower individuals to do great work in the future, whether they remain in politics or pursue another field.
RLI participants will learn organization and voter contact skills. Fellows and Associates are arranged into teams to work collectively to meet organizing goals. Each team will have a Lead Fellow, and every team member will have a unique role.
