Running for Public Office

Running for Public Office is a part-time 12 week experiential learning program designed by Coro Pittsburgh strives to strengthen citizen participation in public elections and to increase the diversity and level of preparation of candidates running for office and managing campaigns in Greater Pittsburgh.
Our goal is to recruit, select, engage and prepare highly motivated individuals to lead and assist in successful electoral campaigns in Greater Pittsburgh. Participants will learn how to get involved in electoral campaigns or run for public office by developing mock campaigns. Running for Public Office will focus on the process of becoming involved and will not focus on a particular ideology, political party, or policy agenda.
Running for Public Office includes 42 hours of seminar, conducted in twelve consecutive Thursday sessions from 5:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
For more information on the program, or to nominate a candidate, please contact Misti McKeehen at or 412-258-2676.
