About this training

Making calls is a huge opportunity to engage voters in important conversations about specific candidates, getting out the vote, and can even help with recruiting more volunteers.

"Phone Banking 101" will teach you the basics of canvassing, making you a more confident and effective volunteer. It's also a great resource for volunteer leaders and campaign staffers looking to train novice grassroots activists.

After watching the video, be sure to download the accompanying toolkit. These materials were created with the intent of deepening the learning experience by providing essential, comprehensive information. You'll find sample scripts, at-home practice guides, and more in-depth instruction about phone banking, how to do it, and why it's effective. We've compiled a library of resources to give you everything you need to become, or train others on how to, become an expert caller.
