About this course: Volunteers are a cornerstone of successful campaigns, so learning to effectively use volunteer energy is crucial. In this course, you will identify where to find volunteers and how to develop them into the leaders who carry your campaign to victory.
When to take this course: There’s really no bad time to take this course because who doesn’t want more volunteers? However, an ideal time is when you’re in the early stages of your campaign and looking to identify and build your leadership team. If you have those folks in place already, taking this course a month or two prior to launching your major field efforts should give you plenty of time to recruit the folks you’ll need to power your phone banks and canvasses.
