Dear Students for Barack Obama Members,

In the coming week, the Obama for America Campaign is launching a program called Obama Organizing Fellows.

This summer we are looking for students or recent graduates who want to be a part of a new generation of leadership that believes, like Senator Obama, that real change comes from the ground up.Fellows will be trained on the basics of organizing & campaign fundamentals and then placed in a community to carryout grassroots activities. Program participation will start on June 5 through the end of the summer. Fellows will be asked to commit to a minimum of 30 hours per week.

We are going to be releasing the formal application in a matter of days, but I wanted to let you know about it early so that you can start spreading word to your friends

In the meantime, you can sign up and encourage others to sign up at my.barackobama.com/obamafellows to make sure you are among first to receive applications.

Thanks again for all you are doing to elect Barack Obama.

Tobin Van Ostern
National Deputy Director
