Join a New Generation of Leaders

For the past 17 years, the Advanced Democratic Leadership Institute (ADLI) has been at the forefront in training a new generation of leaders. ADLI offers a weekend long intensive training designed to simulate a full campaign in one weekend. After completing the training, attendees will be equipped with the tools they need to manage campaigns of their own. 

This will be a vital year in Wisconsin: ADLI is your chance to begin working towards a Democratic victory for the 2016 elections. Ensuring that Wisconsin’s next generation of leaders have the necessary skills and connections will help ensure success here in Wisconsin and in our nation’s capitol. In addition, you will have a rare opportunity to meet the people in politics that will be making their hiring decisions in the future.
