February 3 Session is full but there is room available to attend the Feb 22 session link at the bottom of this event page

We have dozens of new Democratic Precinct Committee People across Centre County and  a groundswell of Democrats interested in becoming Precinct Committee People , Neighborhood Team Leaders or “on call" volunteers. We’re kicking off 2018 with TWO training opportunities to meet the demand.

DATE:  Saturday, Feb 3

TIME:  9:30 am -- 11:00 am

PLACE:  Centre County Democratic Office, 315 S Allen St., Suite 116, State College

MISSION:  to understand the critical impact of building a "Democratic community" in your neighborhood; to gain specific skills to build that community; to network with other Democratic organizers and volunteers

AGENDA (identical for each training date):

  • Why build a Democratic community? 
    • to increase Democratic voter turnout
    • to elect more Democrats to local, state, and national offices
    •  to encourage Democratic friends, neighbors, even you (!) to run for office
  • Skills training for community building
    • Petition circulation
    • Door knocking
    • Poll coverage (outside the poll)
    •  Building and maintaining a volunteer network
  • Responsibilities of a Committee Person 
  • Responsibilities of a Neighborhood Leader 
  • "On-call" volunteer opportunities
  • Introduction to VAN (Voter Access Network), the comprehensive, powerful, but user-friendly voter data base (available only to Democrats)


  • new Precinct Committee People
  • wannabe Precinct Committee People, Neighborhood Leaders, and anyone passionate about making a difference--no matter how large or small
  • any Precinct Committee People who haven't been to a training within the last four years

See you soon!
