It’s the end of week one in the field for our summer organizers, and they’ve hit the ground running:
- Christman, Joe, and Tara all got to speak to President Obama when he was the surprise guest on Wednesday's summer organizer conference call. As Christman tells it: “[The President] said, "Pick yourself up after a hard day, brush yourself off, and do it again with enthusiasm." Not bad advice from the Chief Organizer himself.”
- Summer organizers in Colorado, Nevada, and Missouri all took to Twitter to share why they've signed on to the program and share their news from the field.
- And finally, we went behind the scenes of the summer organizer training in Iowa, Wisconsin and New Hampshire.
You can follow the adventures of the summer organizers on Twitter using the #SumOrg11 hashtag—and we’ll be keeping you up to date in more than 140 characters right here on the blog.
