Volunteer

The only way we’ve been able to move democracy forward is because of volunteers like you!

Just like the work, the needs of the volunteer program at Next Up change often. Sign up using the form below and you’ll hear from our Community Engagement Manager, who will work with you to find the best volunteer opportunity for you. In addition to opportunities like call nights, attending major events, registering voters, and helping in the office, we also have some consistent volunteer opportunities.

ways to directly engage with us!

Next Up Action Team

This group meets monthly and utilizes advocacy techniques to build our base, get out the vote, and plan fun events. We ask members to commit to a full year of the team, and 5 hours of volunteering a month (including the meeting).

Communications or Events Team

Activities include writing newsletters, collecting stories, promoting events, and more. We will meet both in-person and communicate over email to tackle particular projects.
