Volunteer with Working America

We need your help to make a difference in California's 10th and 21st Congressional Districts.

Working America is mobilizing volunteers in the Central Valley to build the resistance and a majority for progressive change.

Before you attend a training event with us, be sure to fill out this volunteer form and email or fax it to (510) 835-4913.

1) Attend a Volunteer Training

All volunteers must submit a Working America in the Central Valley volunteer sign-up form and be trained before canvassing with us. 

If you have not previously trained with us, select your date below, then on the RSVP form, be sure to select the "come early" option in the drop down menu to be trained in Modesto before your shift. Trainings will take place promptly at 10:00 a.m. before Saturday shifts and at 3:00 p.m. before weekday shifts.  When you RSVP for an event, be sure to choose the proper start time based on whether you have previously been trained or not.

We are happy to train groups with 12 – 15 volunteers in locations other than Modesto – contact us by email to make arrangements. Those trained must commit to volunteer with us for at least one canvass.

2) Sign Up for Volunteer Shifts

Now you're ready to hit the streets with us to talk – and listen – and make a difference.

Volunteer shifts in CD 10 stage from our Modesto office at 1003 10th Street, Suite A. Volunteer shifts in CD 21 will stage from locations to be posted here, on the Working America website, and will be nearby the area we are canvassing at the time.

Space is limited for volunteer shifts, so please only RSVP to events you will be able to attend.
