Barack Obama Organizes an Army of College Student Volunteers

About 300 college students recently completed their training at Hampton University as Barack Obama Organizing Fellows. The students attended workshops on canvassing, voter education, and voter registration drives. These students will join another 3,000 Obama Organizing Fellows trained at other sites across the country.

The students will fan out across the country and spend the summer working for the Obama campaign. They have pledged to spend at least 30 hours a week working for the Obama campaign organization.
