Ask Me Anything: Campaign Volunteering Edition
Have you ever wanted to volunteer on a political campaign but not sure what to expect or where to start? You are not alone!
This informal information session is designed for people with no campaign volunteering experience. It is your opportunity to ask an experienced campaigner all your questions. Learn about elections, campaigns, the different volunteer roles, and useful buzz words.
Whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, if you only have 4hrs or 4 days there is a role and a way for you to get involved.
Kelsey Gammel, Nunavut, NWT and Yukon Director
Kelsey worked in the Premier’s office for just over a year in her early twenties. It was her first job in politics, but not the first time she had been involved.
She became Recreation Programmer for the Village of Teslin, a unique position where she worked both for the municipal government and the first nations government, Teslin Tlingit Council.
She now works at the Recreation and Parks Association of Yukon where she gets to help people start up and access recreation programs that lead to healthier and happier lifestyles. Kelsey ran for council in Whitehorse learning about how to run a campaign, what it means and what it takes to run in an election.
