Obama for America Massachusetts 77 Summer St.

10th Floor Boston, MA 02110 Dear College/University, Obama for America would like to extend students the opportunity to gain invaluable experience in field organizing for the Barack Obama campaign. We are seeking enthusiastic, hardworking and goal-oriented students who can to contribute 15 hours a week in our Spring Organizing Fellowship Program. Over the course of the 14 weeks program, Fellows will be responsible for building campus and neighborhood teams of volunteers that will serve as the backbone to the Presidents re-election campaign. Our Fellows will engage potential volunteers through phone calls and canvassing, work with campus organizers to discuss shared goals and strategy, plan events, and register new voters at community events. If accepted, students will have the opportunity to help re-elect President Obama and other Democrats. Throughout the program, Spring Fellows will be provided with excellent training in organizing, as well as exposure to influential state and national political figures and leaders. Students will gain valuable experiences and skills that will leave them in great positions to obtain jobs with the Barack Obama campaign or find other jobs in the organizing field. It will provide individuals with the opportunity to step outside the classroom and learn practical skills that will aid them in the years following graduation. Working for Obama for America as a Spring Fellow will enable students to become a part of the grassroots movement that is the foundation for our electoral success. The program will also be offered in the summer and the fall. Fellows will be expected to attend a weekend long training on February 4th and 5th. There will be a weekly in person meeting in Boston one evening a week. Fellows will also be expected to work a full or half day every weekend. Compensation for car mileage is available.
