GOTV Trainings



It’s GOTV, and what do we do!? It’s time to convene, connect, and train staff, organizers, and volunteers. GOTV trainings help you align everyone on what exactly needs to happen and how you will go about executing your GOTV plan. This is an important opportunity to gather before heading into a hectic period during which you’ll need everyone on the team to act responsibly, with integrity, and according to plan. You also don’t want to waste time. So, invest in preparing top-notch GOTV trainings that will motivate your team, and equip them with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets they need to be successful.

This guide will outline what to cover in your GOTV trainings, how to adapt trainings for different audiences, and how to facilitate inspiring, constructive learning experiences for staff, organizers, and volunteers. We’ll walk through each stage of planning your training—from determining attendance to choosing a location to developing your content.
