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.

Upcoming Volunteer Events

We are gearing up for a busy summer of fun! Our fellows are attending community events to talk to folks about criminal justice reform, modernizing the voting age, and properly funding our public education system. Can you join us? Sign up by clicking on an event below!
