Campaigns are won on the ground – at the doorstep and on the phone. Paid ads and social media posts can be part of an effective election campaign, and no one ever won a contested campaign without talking directly to voters. And lots of them.
Canvassing for Change applies principles of community organizing to build large volunteer canvassing teams. Building off of best practices from the last 10 years of US Democrat campaigns, and field-tested and refined by progressives in Canada, Canvassing for Change teaches the practical and hands on skills needed to win.
Canvassing for Change is for any staff or volunteers running campaigns that need to operate large-scale field operations to have thousands of person-to-person conversations to win. Organizers and volunteers on campaigns to elect candidates, win referenda, or insert an issues-based campaign into an election conversation are all good candidates for this training.
Tuition for Canvassing for Change is $165. Scholarships are available for individuals and organizations who cannot afford the full tuition fee. You'll have a chance to apply for a scholarship as part of your training application. Applicants applying through a role in a political party are ineligible for scholarship
