Calling all new recruits within the Democratic party, welcome! We here at College and Young Democrats want to make sure you have a great introduction on what we as Iowa Democrats stand for. We are providing a new mentorship program to guide new activists through the ins and outs of local and state politics!

You can be any age to apply to be a mentee. Additionally, we are looking for mentors to provide guidance to mentees. If you are an experienced Democratic activist in Iowa please apply to be a mentor!

Through this program, a mentee and their mentor will have a recommended 2 hours of 1 to 1 contact a week. This could be going to an event together, knocking doors, making phone calls

As the Executive Board of College and Young Democrats of Iowa, we wouldn’t be where we are if it weren’t for the valuable Democratic mentors we had along the way. We want everyone to have the mentorship opportunities we have had so they can grow and prosper within our state party.

The value relationships between activists new and experienced will help solidify and build the base of the party we all love. This program will begin July 2nd and end November 9th. Applications are due June 29th.
