The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
D.C. Bully Busters (DCBB) wants you! As a campaign ambassador, you will draw attention to the issue of bullying in politics and make sure that our leaders are role models. DCBB, an organization run by teens and tweens, is seeking a parent and student team (of any grade level) to volunteer to attend campaign events and ask both candidates to sign the DCBB campaign pledge. By signing the pledge, the candidate is making a commitment that he/she will not bully or be a bystander to bullying tactics, both during the campaign and if elected to Congress. Let’s work together to make it clear that bullying is not an American value.
As a volunteer team, you will:
Interact with 11th district Congressional candidates at campaign events, town halls, debates, etc
Work to gather local media attention
Engage your peers on social media
Bring awareness to bullying across our culture
Gain leadership/communication skills and a stronger sense of civic engagement
One-on-one training to learn more about the founding of DCBB, the specific role, and to prepare for the campaign events
A toolkit with resources to support your efforts during the campaign - including media support
Ongoing communication with DCBB Headquarters
Opportunities to stay involved after the election
Please respond to the posting for more information and to set up a training with our campaign coordinator.
