The YWPL has been held in Washington, D.C. since 2007 and is the flagship program of Running Start, a nonpartisan organization that encourages girls to lead from every background and ideology.
Running Start is a non-partisan, non-profit organization dedicated to educating young women about politics and inspiring them to run for elected office. Running Start was created because young women remain only a tiny fraction of the elected officials and candidates for public office. We talk to young women about politics and leadership early in their lives, so that they grow up inspired and ready to run! Running Start trains the young women who will shape tomorrow's world.
