BUILDING THE TEAM TO HELP DEMOCRATS WIN

ORGANIZING CORPS 2020 recruits first-time organizers and trains them on the skills they need to get a paid, full-time job working on the 2020 Democratic Presidential campaign to help put a Democrat in the White House and win up and down the ticket on November 3, 2020.

Organizing Corps 2020 gives you the skills you need to get a paid job on the 2020 general election campaign.

We’re recruiting, training, and compensating 1,000 organizers in eight battleground states—Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin—to work on the 2020 general election and help Democrats win up and down the ticket. No prior organizing experience is needed; you bring the passion for change, and we’ll bring the skills you need to make it happen: voter contact, volunteer management, digital strategy, data analytics, and more. After successfully completing an Organizing Corps training program, corps members get hired by the presidential campaign in the summer of 2020.

This May, Organizing Corps 2020 will offer intensive and interactive Virtual Bootcamps to prepare first-time organizers for campaign work in the quickly evolving remote organizing space.

WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE
This is the most important election of our lifetime. But to take back the White House and win up and down the ticket on November 3, 2020, Democrats will need a talented and passionate team of well-trained, local, diverse organizers—like you—in key battleground states, ready to problem-solve and reach voters no matter what our rapidly changing world throws at us. Organizing Corps 2020 is building that team today.

Organizing Corps 2020’s Virtual Bootcamp is a 6-day intensive and interactive online training on campaign organizing. The program is designed for first-time organizers interested in joining the 2020 general election campaign as full-time campaign staff in AZ, FL, GA, MI, MN, NC, PA & WI.

HOW IT WORKS:

STEP 1: Complete TRAINING and receive a STIPEND at one of Organizing Corps 2020’s Virtual Bootcamps in May.

STEP 2: GET HIRED by the presidential campaign as a full-time, paid organizer in June of 2020 with the direct support of Organizing Corps 2020.

STEP 3: LAUNCH YOUR CAREER in June and help win back the White House, elect Democrats, and change the direction of this country on November 3, 2020.

WHAT WE TRAIN ON:

Electoral campaign infrastructure, ecosystem, and strategy

Volunteer recruitment, training, and management

Voter contact, persuasion, registration, and mobilization (our favorite!)

Data analytics and digital tools

Campaign office/virtual space set-up and administration

…You thrive in an action-based and team-oriented learning environment. Campaign work is a fast-paced, team sport that—now more than ever—requires creative thinking and adaptability.

 

MEET THE TEAM
Corps Members are accelerating their careers with real-world experience and have joined an extensive network of campaign veteran staff and partners that will be valuable to any professional future—in campaigns or elsewhere.

I feel like I got the bug from this program. I saw so much personal growth throughout this program, but also saw impact (no matter how small) in the communities I was able to work in.

The margins that we can win or lose by in 2020 are field margins, or margins that we, the 30 [Milwaukee corps members] this summer, could potentially make up.

My learning experience has been monumental over the last 8-weeks. I learned how to organize for grassroots campaigns […] through phone banking, canvassing, volunteer recruitment and so much more.

Jordan B.
Philadephia, PA

I learned the skills and tools needed to successfully engage voters and volunteers to get them excited for the 2020 election. I was able to hold a leadership role in guiding volunteers, even assisting my peers with Votebuilder, and working with other community leaders.

My learning experience with Organizing Corps changed my life. It was such a comprehensive learning experience and I feel so prepared for the future — both with life and my career. OC has given me every skill I need to organize in the future as well as relationships that I will carry with me for life.
