Captains Program

Apply to be part of the Captains Program with Wisconsin Democrats

The Democratic Party of Wisconsin is excited to announce our Captains program. Community & Campus Captains will be a part of the groundswell of progressive action that will lay the groundwork for a successful 2020 election. Captains will be trained on the basics of organizing & campaign fundamentals and work in their communities to empower grassroots teams. This program is designed to test, train, and develop a new class of organizers, to help strengthen the progressive fabric of the state, and to help elect Democrats up and down the ticket!

College & high school students are welcome to apply to be a Campus Captain. This means you will be volunteering on your campus & talking to fellow students about the issues you care about the most. Alternatively, you can apply to be a Community Captain, which will mean you will be volunteering off-campus.

**Note: This is an unpaid, volunteer opportunity. Captains are located statewide and you will be working locally in your community**

Captains will be asked to commit to a minimum of 5 hours per week and will:

  • Participate in training on field organizing, messaging, and other activities.
  • Organize in your community, build teams, and help develop new progressive leaders.
  • Engage new potential volunteers through phone calls and relational organizing.
  • Hold team launches and trainings to better support and empower our teams.
  • Use social networks to help amplify our message and to talk about our work.
  • Continue to build the movement to help elect Democrats up and down the ticket this November.

Ideal applicants require:

  • Passion for Democratic politics
  • Attention to detail
  • Flexibility
  • Ability to communicate ideas on the phone
  • Fluency in basic computer use
