Last summer, I had the good fortune of being accepted to the OFA-Missouri Summer Organizing Fellows program. After seeing an advertisement for the program online, I decided it would be a great way to spend my summer. The Fellows program offered me an opportunity to become more involved in my community while helping Barack Obama, a man I greatly admire, spread his message and win the election.
At the end of my fellowship, I felt as though I had grown tremendously as a person and that I had contributed something of value to my community. In addition, the program provided me with many life skills that I continue to use, and will value going forward. The OFA-MO Summer Organizing Fellowship was a life-changing experience, especially for a student still in high school. I would whole-heartedly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in politics and motivated to help President Obama and other Democrats win in 2012.
Just like Adam, you could spend your summer helping with the Obama 2012 campaign organizing within your community. Apply for the Summer Organizing Fellows Program.
