The following are examples of activities the teams will participate in. However, you do not have to be part of a team to engage in any of these activities:
Host a House Party: volunteer to host a conversation with 15-20 of your fellow Fresnans about how our schools are doing and where we go from here! (2-3 hrs)
Meet with your School Board Member: One of the most powerful ways to have your voice heard is to schedule a personal meeting with your school board member. The GO Fresno team can help you prepare on an issue that matters to you to discuss with your board member. (2-5 hrs.)
Speak at a board meeting: Attend a school board meeting and speak on an issue that matters to you. The GO Fresno team can help you prepare to go in front of the board and speak with a concise clear message using data to be able to use the two minutes given to speak wisely. (3-4 hrs.)
Special events: Plan, organize, and implement successful campaign events by working on event committees, helping out on the event day, and/or participating in the event. (3-4 hrs.)
Office Volunteer: Office Volunteers assist GO Fresno staff with bulk mailings, thank you notes, data entry and general office tasks. Time Commitment: Flexible hours, Monday-Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. (1-8 hrs.)
