Obama 2012 Volunteer Workshop

473

Published on

3 hour workshop designed for new and experienced volunteers for the Obama for America 2012 Presidential Campaign. The workshop focused on motivating volunteers to get involved, preparing them with canvassing and phone-banking skills, and giving them an opportunity to connect with other volunteers. I facilitated the workshop to over 200 volunteers, with the help of over 20 experienced volunteers leading activities and discussions.
