THE ARENA TRAINING COMES TO RALEIGH!

They are building a new generation of leaders to enter the arena — to run for office, to become civic activists, and more.

WHY "THE ARENA"?

"The credit belongs to the person* who is actually in the arena...who strives valiantly..."        — Theodore Roosevelt(*friendly edit)

PROGRAMMING PREVIEW

  1. We will start with full group vision-setting sessions and keynotes aimed at building a common sense of purpose.
  2. We will then offer two tracks of breakout trainings and panels:
    1. one track for those who want to run for office
    2. another for those who want to become civic activists and contribute in other ways.
  3. We will then break into regional cohorts and make tangible plans to advance change — during our last summit, these action planning meetings yielded myriad new organizations and candidacies that are already making a difference.
  4. Of course, we will also have informal social gatherings throughout the summit — including in the evenings.
