The SDLA Institute is a program that equips Fellows with the skills, opportunities, and relationships to make change in San Diego.
The training programs focuses on a core curriculum of personal leadership development, communications, fund raising, political strategy, traditional and new media, and public speaking. The Fellows also organize a fundraiser to put into practice their organizing skills, and to help fund the next year’s class.
The SDLA Institute spans 10 full days on weekends between January and June, usually on Saturdays.
The program is designed to provide Fellows with the tools they need to take the next step in their careers. The training program is relevant to Fellows who work inside and outside of politics, with an emphasis on preparing young people to be engaged in civic life throughout their careers.
Fellows spend time meeting with local leaders from across sectors, including through pairings with career mentors.
