ORGANIZING CORPS 2020 IS GIVING YOUNG PEOPLE THE SKILLS NEEDED TO WORK ON THE 2020 GENERAL ELECTION STARTING THIS SUMMER

We are recruiting college juniors and students expecting to complete school by June 2020 to spend 8 weeks this summer – June 10, 2019–August 2, 2019 – learning the art and science of being a field organizer in a presidential election.

Corps members can earn $4,000 gaining valuable career skills in leadership, project management and communication while experiencing the exciting and rewarding field of campaigns.

The program kicks off with a five-day national training led by campaign veterans where corps members will learn key skills in field and digital organizing, and data analytics. For the remaining 7 weeks, corps members will, with the help of a coach, return to their home communities and work with their local Democratic party to turn the training into on the ground learning through action – organizing neighborhoods and registering voters. In the process, corps members will build a powerful network of like-minded peers and mentors from across the country that will last beyond 2020.

The summer 2019 corps experience will give young people the skills and tools to organize their community and – importantly – get a great first job working for the Democratic presidential nominee and fighting to win across the country in 2020.
