PolitiCorps Summer is a political bootcamp consisting of hands-on skills training, innovative public policy intensives, and real-world applications of leadership skills and campaign savvy.
PolitiCorps Fellows learn new ways of thinking about the world. But PolitiCorps is not just a school of thought. PolitiCorps is a place where Fellows learn by doing: they register voters, organize communities, vet public policy white papers, launch media campaigns, and, at the end of the day, make an impact. It’s the only program of its kind—a political immersion and leadership training program designed to engage and prepare college students and recent graduates for a broad spectrum of progressive leadership activities.
Phil Smith delivered a one hour long chart talk/speech to the fellows of the 2009 Politicorps class called the Oregon Bus Project, a prestigious political fellowship that takes place each in summer in Portland, Oregon. Following the chart talk, Phil administered the P&P exercise for two hours.
