The program provides training in politics, nonprofit advocacy

November 27 – Pacific Resource Partnership accepts nominations from a new generation of local leaders who wish to join political campaigns, run for office or “take their passion for political advocacy to the next level.”

Successful applicants will complete 15 weeks of classroom instruction on Oahu starting in January, with the possibility of internships in politics, political campaigning, public service, government, and nonprofit advocacy.

The deadline for applications is Friday, including for applicants from neighboring islands. More information and applications are available at.

PRP calls its program Partners for Democracy.

“We established this program to train the next generation of leaders and give them the opportunity to deepen political issues in Hawaii and learn how to campaign effectively,” said Kyle Chock, Acting Executive Director of PRP, in a press release. “Whether you’ve just graduated from college and want to get more involved, or are in mid-career and want to explore a new avenue in public policy, we encourage you to apply to the Partners for Democracy program. “

The 2018 and 2019 PRP polls identified affordable housing, homelessness and economic hardship as top concerns for residents of Hawaii.

“Partners for Democracy will give a new generation of leaders the opportunity to help address and resolve some of these issues,” said PRP announcing the new training program. “PRP also launched KAKOU, a Hawaii-focused civic engagement mobile app, in 2019 to encourage voting and legislative participation, and offered its executive leadership program to its member contractors for three years. “

PRP is a non-profit organization that represents the Hawaii Regional Carpenters Council and over 240 Hawaii contractors.
