Ready to Lead®
Like you, New American Leaders has been closely monitoring the news and government updates for guidance on the coronavirus (COVID-19). Given its rapid spread and the danger it poses, we've decided to suspend all programs through the end of April. Our hope is that we will be able to reschedule some of these trainings later in the calendar year, and supplement with online resources in the meantime.
At this time, the following trainings are cancelled:
- Ready to Lead Colorado
- Ready to Lead Ohio
- Ready to Win
- Boss Ladies Atlanta
- Boss Ladies Austin
While this is a bump in the road, we remain committed to building the political power of #PeopleLikeUs. As always, we are available for phone calls, video chats, and even in person meetups once the outbreak has subsided to help you shake up politics as usual and plan your leadership journey!
Our signature training program identifies the immigrant experience as an asset in civic leadership. The curriculum, specifically designed by new Americans, shows trainees how to message, target, fundraise, and embrace one’s heritage to become a successful candidate.
At Ready to Lead®, you will:
Write a compelling stump speech
Build your fundraising list
Learn messaging strategies
Network with future candidates
Meet New American elected officials
