FELLOWS TRAININGS

CEEP fellows go through a number of trainings to help prepare for the important work that is to be done on campus. Trainings cover areas such as voter registration, voter education, being nonpartisan, and getting out the vote. The trainings and mini trainings are geared towards making fellows experts in the areas of election engagement.

Mini Trainings

Activity Tracker – Using the activity tracker should be fun, quick, and easy. This mini training walks fellows through how to locate and enter the appropriate information. The tracker should be used for every activity or event that the fellows complete. Check out the mini training here.

Being Nonpartisan – Being nonpartisan is extremely important in our line of engagement work. Fellows are required, as stated in their contract, to remain nonpartisan throughout their time with CEEP. Questions surrounding remaining nonpartisan can be answered in this mini training. Check out the mini training here.

Effective Tabling Strategies on Campus – Tabling is one of the most common tools used when doing voter registration. This training covers the basics to making sure the table is not the main attraction. People stop by a table because they see something interesting and engaging, or their attention is actively being drawn to it. Being in front of the table directly talking to people is going to bring in more voter registrations than letting people come to you. Check out the mini training here

GOTV – Get out the vote is arguably the most important part to the CEEP fellowship. This is where fellows really shine and work with their campus community. Students should use creative reminders to promote getting students to the polls.  Check out the mini training here.

Social Media and Branding – Social media is a key component to students lives. This mini training looks tips and resources to help improve social media branding.
