Doing more than ever before, YDWA launches first ever Campaign School

YDWAthankyoucard8The Young Democrats of Washington have been building our capacity to do great things – one of which was our first ever Campaign School. 32 Young Democrats, from as far as Bellingham, Vancouver, Wenatchee, Spokane, Pullman and Yakima, came to Seattle to learn campaign skills from industry experts. YDWA is committed to building a strong bench of campaign professionals with the skills and network they need to take Democratic campaigning to the next level.

Our Campaign School would not have been possible without the hard work of YDWA VP of Membership Engagement Matthew Yoo! Thank you to all his hard work and dedication to mentoring future campaigners.
