We’ve launched Arena Academy, a best-in-class training program to build an enduring talent pipeline for progressive campaigns.


For our first Academy in Des Moines, Iowa, over 45% of our 712 applicants requested a full scholarship. Our goal is to be as accessible and inclusive as possible: in Iowa 51% of our accepted applicants have received full scholarships, including travel and lodging. 70% of these scholarship recipients are people of color. Please join us so that we can continue to open the Academy to every qualified person who wants to learn.
