Civic Skills Training

Civic Skills Training (CST) is a component of the First-Year Fellows program and is designed to both inform students about the structures and processes of the political world, as well as provide the tangible skills necessary to excel in their internships and beyond.2015 Civic Skills Training
Students attend four on-campus training sessions in the spring term and then spend another five days in training in Washington, DC. Students participate in workshops on such topics as public speaking, networking, advocacy writing, media relations, project management, and professionalism. The training includes meetings and sessions around the city, and provides an excellent opportunity for students to familiarize themselves with our Nation's Capitol. Students also have the opportunity to meet with Dartmouth alumni and other professionals working in the civic sector and during the Annual Dartmouth Student & Alumni Reception held each June in Washington DC.
