Becoming a volunteer at 917 Society gives you the amazing opportunity to make an everlasting difference in the lives of our children by distributing a copy of the Constitution to every eighth grade student! We need your help in order to be fully prepared for Constitution Day on September 17th!
We will begin signing up volunteers to help with deliveries to schools in each state for 2023 by County/Parish. We have a checklist that will help you with organizing. Click here to download the PDF checklist.
Our email outreach of over 27,000 emails to principals and schools has begun and we are receiving orders from across the country!
Volunteers also needed to help with Marketing and Media to spread the word about our work. Use your skills for a great cause!
For a detailed list of volunteer positions needed, see below
If you are planning on delivering Constitutions please fill out our volunteer form for that purpose.
Delivering Constitutions to Schools
The volunteer would need to deliver to areas which have not been requested by or assigned to legislators or other volunteers. We would do our very best to accommodate your request.
Preparing Postcards/Mailing Publications
This would be a hands-on project and a work area would be decided upon at the time the project is needed.
Website Research for Projects
This would require the volunteer to have access to the internet and the knowledge required to research specific requested projects. Most urgent at this time is a need for volunteers to research schools in order to locate principals and/or contacts at said schools in order to distribute pocket constitutions to those facilities. The volunteer would need to enter information into a provided spreadsheet and then send to the Data Entry specialist to import on the master list.
Any calls to legislators or other groups which might be prospects to gain buy-in on the 917 Society projects. This might also include school contacts to either gain buy-in or set up delivery of constitutions.. We would provide a calling script for volunteer callers and, in most cases, there would also be a list of those who we wish to contact.
Social Media Volunteer
This would require the volunteer to have a knowledge of basics for posting/maintenance of social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Telegram, etc.
Grant Writing Assistance
The volunteer would be working with the Executive Director. Grant writing is the practice of completing an application process for a financial grant provided by an institution such as a government department, corporation, foundation, or trust. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Grant_writing
