Dallas Democratic Summer Fellows will work closely with our Executive Director to recruit other leaders and organizers, register and contact voters, and build neighborhood volunteer teams that will help keep Dallas blue. Fellows will learn the ins and outs of grassroots organizing while building lasting relationships with one another and supporters in the community. They will participate in and help lead phone banks, block walks and voter registration drives for a minimum of 20 hours per week.
What We’re Looking For
Our Fellows are committed to applying their enthusiasm and passion for progressive causes and candidates to community organizing in Dallas County. They are interested in empowering supporters to become volunteers, and non-voters to become civic participants.
Ideal candidates will be comfortable working in a fast-paced environment with a diverse team. They will understand that a sense of humor is a must, as is a willingness to learn new skills as organizers and leaders. We are seeking individuals who enjoy volunteer-driven community organizing and who take initiative. All our Fellows come from different backgrounds and walks of life, but they are all happily committed to engaging people in the Democratic process.
Application deadline: May 28
Kickoff training in Dallas: May 31
Program end date: August 9
