2020 Census - Outreach Volunteer Opportunity

The 2020 Census is quickly approaching. Help us spread the word throughout Phoenix!

Overview:
In an effort to inform, educate and motivate people to participate in the 2020 Census, the City of Phoenix seeks volunteers to help with outreach.

Outreach efforts will include informing the public about the new response options coming to the 2020 Census, which include online, phone or mail. In addition, the effort aims to demonstrate how each person has the ability to impact their community by completing a census form for their household.
