The 50by2050Project Mentor Program is an exclusive opportunity to receive one-on-one mentorship from a Congresswoman and expert training to successfully run for office.
The program begins with a launch event at Young Women Run in Washington, D.C. on June 26, 2019 and monthly trainings to learn political platform design, fundraising, networking and launching a political brand online.
