Applications for the 2021 We Power NYC Ambassador Program are officially closed. All applicants will be notified by February 22nd at 12pm.
The 2021 We Power NYC Ambassador Program application is officially live! We are looking for New Yorkers ages 14-24 who are passionate about civic engagement, voting, and democracy to join our 2021 We Power NYC Ambassador team! This paid opportunity will run from February through November 2021. Ambassadors will earn up to $175 per month for 10-15 hours of work. For the time being, this opportunity will be entirely remote. As we continue to face a global pandemic, the integrity and accessibility of our elections is 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.
We Power NYC 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. Ambassadors will be required to:
- Regularly attend weekly virtual meetings
- Share crucial election and voting information with their peers
- Participate in projects with the Campaign Finance Board staff
- Produce original content for social media
- Complete a final research project
- Host Get Out the Vote Events
17 members will be selected for the 2021 program. The deadline to apply is Friday, February 12, 2021 at 5:00pm. Young New Yorkers from all experience levels and backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Applicants who make it to the second round should be prepared to give a 15 minute phone or Zoom interview with the Youth Engagement Coordinator.
Once you complete this interest form, check your email for a link to access the application.
