New Yorkers ages 14-18 who are passionate about civic engagement, voting, and democracy can apply to join the 2022 NYC Votes Youth Ambassador team! This paid opportunity will run from May-August, with an option to stay on through November 2022. Ambassadors will earn up to $175 per month for 10-15 hours of work. For the time being, this opportunity will be entirely remote, with a possibility for 2 days/week in person programming during the summer months. As we continue to face a global pandemic, the integrity and accessibility of our elections are at stake. Now more than ever we must work together to educate and mobilize our communities about the importance of civic engagement–especially at the local level.
NYC Votes Youth Ambassadors are a community of young people who care about our city and our democracy. Ambassadors will be expected to complete weekly tasks, long-term projects, and engage in regular meetings. The Ambassadors will be trained to become the next generation of community leaders in New York City. Participating in the program provides not only an opportunity to work alongside a city agency and learn more about voting and local government, but also to develop leadership, public speaking, and community organizing skills. Participants should be available from 5-7pm on Wednesdays for virtual team meetings, as well as 9-5pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the summer months for potential in-person programming.
