Throughout the year, the California Center for Civic Participation looks to recruit energized and passionate individuals who can support our Core Programs, Green Focus and Women in Politics. Program Instructors (PI's) support youth during the program conferences and have the option to assist in creating activities and curriculum for instruction. PI’s are recognized as experts in the field, bringing a wealth of knowledge about various policy issues associated with the topics discussed. They are encouraged to act as equal partners to the youth which creates trust and makes them feel comfortable so that they can express themselves freely and become fully engaged.

  • Participate in one to two scheduled facilitation conference calls prior to each event 

  • Review and be familiar with all PI preparation materials for each conference

  • Support youth to think critically and creatively in all activities

  • Stay well informed about the main issues addressed in the program

You’ll be doing online research and other internet tasks, learning and using phone skills—and if you are a whiz at social networking, even better! We look for volunteers who have a desire to learn and enthusiasm for our work.
