Candidate Training Academy

The WV Candidate Training Academy is a non-partisan coalition that is dedicated to recruiting and training new candidates for office. We believe that democracy works better when more of us are involved in the political process, and when government is more representative. By purchasing a ticket to this Charleston Candidate Training, you are registering for our day-long Candidate Training on May 16th.

The WV Candidate Training Academy was started in 2015 by a coalition of organizations and partners of every stripe – including the WV Healthy Kids and Families Coalition, Generation WV, the WV Chamber of Commerce Executives, the AFL-CIO, the Sierra Club, WV Citizen Action Group, the WV Center on Budget and Policy, the WV School Board Association, WV Community Development Hub, and the Secretary of State’s Office. Our lead partners are the Our Children, Our Future Campaign and the WV Women’s Commission.
