National Democratic Training Committee
Election day is right around the corner. Your community is counting on you to help elect Democrats this November.  This isn’t an easy task, which is why we built four brand new courses that are all designed to help you do this. If you haven’t done so yet, click HERE to register for our online courses.

Take NDTC's Courses for Precinct Committeepeople
These courses are available to you 24/7, and are completely free. Our courses include:

Voter Contact
Will you be training other volunteers to canvass or phone bank? This course includes best practices and resources to help you facilitate that training.
After taking this course, you’ll be able to run an effective phone bank and train your volunteers on how to have effective conversations at people’s doors, too.

Getting Started as a Precinct Captain
You got elected or appointed as a Precinct Committeeperson, and now it’s time to get to work. What’s expected of you this fall to get out the vote? And how do you foster the relationships you’re building in non-election years?  We’re here to teach you how to get started.

Making the Volunteer Ask
Making the ask can be intimidating. We get it. That’s why we designed this course.  Take this course to practice asking that enthusiastic Democrat to volunteer their time to help you canvass your neighbors or to help a local candidate connect with voters.

Finding Volunteers and Other Supporters
Whether it’s to help you walk your neighborhood or to support a campaign in the area, at some point you’re probably going to need to ask others for help. But where do you find folks who might be willing to pitch in?
In this course, you will identify your goal in recruiting supporters and compile a list of people to ask to help.  
To take any of these courses, click here:  

Take NDTC's Courses for Precinct Committeepeople
Thank you for the work that you're doing. If you know a Democratic Precinct Committeeperson who would benefit from these trainings, please share the information with them. Now let's elect some Democrats!
