About this training:
We are really excited to offer in 2022 a version of our Digital Organizing Bootcamp tailored to meet the needs of labor organizers!
Have you been trying to figure how best to use digital organizing strategies and tactics to accentuate the organizing work you do? Do you have a little experience working in digital organizing but want to fine tune your strategies?
If you answered yes to either of those questions, then our Digital Organizing Bootcamp is for you.
Digital Organizing Bootcamp is a week-long immersive training in Digital Organizing with hands-on, in-depth training on topics like:
Building a digital campaign strategy
Mapping engagement paths for your supporters
Best practices for building websites, writing email blasts, managing social media and other digital organizing tasks
Integrating digital tactics with offline organizing for organizing new work places, supporting strikes, member organizing, public facing actions and more.
Follow up opportunities for mentorship and additional training
To teach you all this and more, we are bringing in some of the best digital trainers in the country to guide you as you master the art of Digital Organizing. This is a unique opportunity to have in-depth conversations with experienced Digital Organizers working across the country about topics like writing a digital campaign budget, managing digital staff, making our digital content inclusive and accessible to everyone and making the case for digital campaigns to non-digital colleagues and bosses.
You’ll also have hands-on experiences with some of the most up-to-date technology being used in Digital Organizing.
This training costs $3000 which includes housing (July 30 check in and August 6 check out) and all meals. We offer a limited number of scholarships and are always willing to work out payment arrangements as needed. We never want anyone to not attend a training because of financial challenges so please apply and let’s talk.
