We’re now 110+ strong but without the help of our committee volunteers, we’d be stuck in 2nd gear.

Our goal is to increase our student membership and volunteers, provide information about our league’s events, and of course help folks to register to vote.

  • Outreach to New Members. Set your own hours and help us onboard and involve our members with friendly calls, emails, and other outreach.

Program Planning & Events (PP&E) Volunteers Needed
There are so many ways to volunteer with the Events Committee. We are often looking for volunteers to greet and check in people at events and hand out name tags. We often need volunteers to bake cookies or sweets to hand out at events and to staff tables. There is always a need for volunteers to set up and clean up before and after our events.
Special Request: We would love to have a photographer to take pictures at our events.
For more information on how you can help, please call Julie Hartford 925-786-5531 or email juliehartford@gmail.com.
 
Voter Service Volunteers Needed
