One of the most intimidating things for organizers and volunteer leaders is asking someone to give their time. This session will address how to frame the question to get to a yes. It will deconstruct examples of a good hard ask, show common mistakes, and demonstrate phrases to use. The target audience is any organizer or volunteer who attempts to recruit others for their campaign work, no matter the setting.

One emphasis this training would make is to meet people where they are. This means keeping in mind how people want to help and what their abilities are. As such, there will also be a component on active listening.
