About the Advocacy Training:

The Campaign Workshop has worked to create a unique and one of a kind Advocacy Training Program that will prepare attendees for the world of advocacy. What sets our training apart is the focus on you and your organization. We keep our trainings to a manageable size, so we can be sure to tailor to the needs and interests of our participants.

Expect to learn a lot – we’ll keep you busy for the full two days of the training! But don’t worry, we’ll take care of breakfast and lunch, as well as a networking happy hour. At night, you’re free to explore the Austin food scene on your own, or mingle with the new contacts you’ve made.

In our Advocacy Training Program, we’ll lay the groundwork for the basic principles that make an effective advocacy campaign. We offer a diverse curriculum, covering goal setting, messaging and storytelling, budgeting and fundraising, digital campaigns, lobbying, and more. Our trainers are experts in the field from bipartisan backgrounds who have used these concepts firsthand and taught them hundreds of times.

We believe in a layered learning approach to training, as each trainee tends to digest information differently. You can expect personal attention, a collaborative atmosphere, and active learning. Our training will consist of sessions taught throughout the day with an interactive classroom style approach. Group breakout sessions with hands-on exercises accompany each session. The exercises and breakout sessions provide practical experience for attendees so they can become familiar working with the materials that are covered during the sessions.

We like to stay in touch. After you’ve completed The Campaign Workshop’s Advocacy Training Program, you’ll gain access to our exclusive online alumni community. We’ll also touch base with a one-on-one follow-up call to assess your advocacy plans. Our training gives you tools, and our support will inspire you to act.
