LAUNCH YOUR CAREER & HELP DEMS WIN IN 2020

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.

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 a 1-week Bootcamp or 5-week Immersion program, Organizing Corps helps corps members get hired by the presidential campaign in the summer of 2020. Apply Today.

WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE
To take back the White House and win up and down the ticket on November 3, 2020, Democrats need a talented and passionate team of well-trained, local, diverse organizers—like you—in key battleground states. Organizing Corps 2020 is building that team today.

Organizing Corps 2020 offers two ways to develop as an organizer and join the 2020 general election as a full-time campaign staffer: our 7-day Bootcamp and 5-week Immersion programs.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:

STEP 1: Organizing Corps 2020 will PAY you to GET TRAINED at one of our programs this winter or spring.

STEP 2: Organizing Corps 2020 will help you GET HIRED by the presidential campaign as a full-time, paid organizer in the summer of 2020.

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

MEET THE CORPS
Corps Members are accelerating their careers with real-world experience and an extensive network 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.

Jadah C.
Milwaukee, WI

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.

Natasha N.
Oakland County, MI

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.
