There are many ways to be involved with PICC. Volunteers are a critical part of our work. They help our organization to have a large impact even though our staff is small.
New Citizens = New Voters Program:
Every week, the lives of hundreds of families are changed by becoming US Citizens. PICC believes that voting is one of the foundations of being an engaged citizen, so we attend every ceremony in Philadelphia to register new citizens to vote.
These ceremonies happen year-round, so we always need new volunteers. Volunteer shifts are available every week. You can sign up online for the days and times that work best for you!
2019 GOTV Phone Bank:
PICC will be calling New American registered voters to make sure they have the necessary information they need to vote for the first time on May 21,2019. This is a nonpartisan phone bank. No prior experience necessary. We will train volunteers before starting to call voters. Please bring a laptop if you have one. You can signup online for the day and time that works best for you.
Civic Engagement Internship:
PICC’s Civic Engagement Internship centers on non-partisan voter registration of new citizens and civic engagement of registered voters, as part of a long-term strategy to increase electoral power in immigrant communities. Interns help to coordinate the New Citizens=New Voters program. The internship is a minimum of 10 weeks.
