Running Start is a nonpartisan nonprofit that trains young women to run for public office. We're empowering young women to get involved in politics and transform our world, one elected female leader at a time. We offer programs that equip them with the hands on skills and confidence they need to run and win. With over 100 training programs across the country, we've trained over 12,000 women (and counting!). And because we're nonpartisan, we're achieving this in the spirit of fellowship while focusing on building stronger community for young women who want to lead.
