Description

Work for Progress seeks Election Canvassers to help us elect candidates who will fight to reverse global warming, get big money out of politics and help young people deal with the rising cost of college and student debt. Applicants should be friendly, outgoing, politically savvy, and creative. You will work with a team of committed canvasser activists to have face to face conversation with voters in critical districts this summer and fall.

 

We know that elections are not the beginning or the end of social change activism. To create meaningful change, we need to build people power and run smart campaigns to influence elected and corporate decision-makers. But elections can help, especially when there is a big difference between the candidates on important issues.

 

For the 2018 election, Work For Progress is partnering with Colorado Fair Share Action to help elect U.S. Representative Jared Polis as Governor and other candidates who want to make a difference on issues like global warming and getting big money out of politics.

 

Apply Today to be an Election Canvasser with Work for Progress and help us make a difference this fall. 

 

Job Description

An Election Canvasser’s basic mission is straightforward: knock on doors in key communities to identify, persuade, and mobilize as many citizens and volunteers as possible to complete the campaign work of our partners. 


The first two weeks of canvassing typically include skills workshops and in-the-field training, during which canvassers learn the basic facts about the campaign and develop the voter contact skills needed to be effective.


Election Canvassers work 5 days a week from 2:30pm to 10pm.


We also have leadership opportunities available. Field Managers oversee a team of Election Canvassers. They are responsible for recruiting, training and motivating Election Canvassers to hit their goals.

 

Qualifications

Work For Progress is looking for candidates with all levels of experience. We will provide you with training so you will know everything you need to do the job.

 

Pay

Election Canvassers can earn up to $18 an hour. Field Managers can earn up to $20 an hour.
