Get Involved!

Though fall is just around the corner, things are heating up here in the Commonwealth!  Democrats across the state are on the ground doing good work to get our candidates elected!  Below are some ways you can get involved!

Become a Kentucky Democratic Party Organizing Fellow
KDP Fellows

The Kentucky Democratic Party (KDP) is offering a substantive, fast-paced fellowship opportunity for students or recent graduates interested in learning what it's like to be on the front lines of a winning campaign.  KDP will recruit and train leaders in this unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience, deepen knowledge of a high level political operation, and join a new core of political organizers in Kentucky.

Fall Program Dates:  September - November 2014 Contact Christian Motley at cmotley@kydemocrat.com for more information.

 

Tell Us Why You are Voting for Alison

KYD Team SwitchBetween now and Election Day, we will be posting on Facebook and Twitter the reasons why Young Democrats in Kentucky are voting for our US Senate Candidate, Alison Lundergan Grimes.

If you'd like us to share your reason, submit it here.

 

Apply for Emerge Kentucky (and a KYD Scholarship)
Emerge
The Kentucky Young Democrats (KYD) are proud to be supporters of Emerge Kentucky!

Emerge Kentucky is changing the face of Kentucky politics by identifying, training and encouraging women to run for office, get elected and to seek higher office. A pool of highly qualified Democratic candidates is being left untapped. Too often, women do not see themselves running for office-they assume they aren't experienced enough or they don't know where to begin.  Emerge Kentucky is changing that!

If you are interested in applying for this exciting program, check out the Emerge Kentucky Application Process webpage.

KYD will be giving three partial scholarships to KYD women accepted into the program.  If you are interested in obtaining of one of these scholarships, please send you resume to KYD President Clint Morris at clintmorris@gmail.com after you have submitted your application to Emerge Kentucky.
