Help us build an enduring talent pipeline with Arena Academy

Your gift of any amount helps us reach our goal to train 1,000 campaign staffers in 2019.


Arena Academy is a five-day immersive training for senior staffers who will work at all levels of our politics — from state legislative to Presidential races.


Our graduates are future campaign managers, digital directors, data and analytics directors, finance directors, communications directors, organizing directors, and organizers. These graduates represent a diverse cohort that hail from 44 states. To date, the majority of graduates are women and people of color, and 55% of graduates came through Academy on scholarship. Of scholarship recipients, 77% identify as people of color.


$300 covers the cost of one Academy ticket.


$2,000 funds a full Academy scholarship, including travel and hotel.
