Gen Z & Millennial Votes Matter Leadership Training

September 29 @ 8:00 am - October 1 @ 5:00 pm

The Transformative Justice Coalition is hosting a non-partisan in-person Gen Z and Millennial Votes Matter Training Event to be held September 29th – October 1st, 2022. This is a paid training opportunity with a $500 stipend and round-trip all expenses paid to Washington, D.C. for the entire event. The stipend is for your attendance and completion of a work plan. There will also be assigned homework prior to the event. To receive the stipend, you must attend every day, uphold a code of conduct, and complete all assignments. The deadline to apply is September 16th, 2022 and proof of vaccination is required.

This effort will prepare 25 persons, 18-35 years old, from Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia, Texas, Washington, D.C., and Wisconsin to serve as Voting Rights Ambassadors to directly serve vulnerable communities and voters by enhancing their ability to participate in the 2020 Presidential Elections.

This Training will use a proven and successful specially designed “Train the Trainer” Voting Rights Immersion Program which will teach fundamentals of voting rights and develop skills for conducting voter registration, voter education, voter assistance for obtaining IDs, voter mobilization, voter turnout and voter protection.

This in-person Gen Z and Millennial Votes Matter Training will enhance the leadership skills of talented students and young community leaders to work in coalition with voting rights and civic participation organizations to register thousands of voters, conduct voter education forums, teach voters to navigate barriers to voting, assist in obtaining voter IDs, help voters to the polls, and protect voters who encounter problems voting.
