Powered by the Democratic Party, Organizing Corp 2020 is currently 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.
The Organizing Corps 2020 application window opened on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 and closes on Monday, April 8, 2019.
Priority consideration will be given to those who apply by Monday, March 18, 2019. Corps members will be admitted on a rolling basis, so there’s no reason to wait!
The online application must be completed in one session, so we recommend that you review the questions and devise a plan first (hint: you will need three references). We also suggest that you compose your short responses in a word processing application like Word, Pages, or Google Docs to reduce the risk of accidentally losing your work (don't you hate when that happens?). When you have your references and short responses ready, come back here to formally submit your application!
