Twenty fellows from YP4’s Front Line Leaders Academy: Los Angeles cohort — our inaugural local program for FLLA — met for their final learning circle in Long Beach, California during the first weekend of December. They have now been trained in all five learning circles – Candidacy, Campaign Management, Communications, Field and Finance, and Fellows have completed the intermediary assignments that test their skills and knowledge gained through the in-person trainings.

Fellows are currently working on their graduation projects which both assess their growth in the five learning circles and results in a complete campaign book for a local race of their choosing.

FLLA:LA graduation will occur January 16th-18th in Arlington, VA. If you are interested in assisting with trainings or celebrating our Fellows during the graduation cermony on the 18th, please contact Karen Schillinger at

FLLA:LA has consisted of 7 faculty members representing positions like elected members of school boards across CA and communication specialists.
