Did you know that many of the MEJC organizers got involved after reading about MEJC on the website? If you’d like to help out occasionally, sometimes, or lots, there are always things to do that would suit you right down to the ground.
MEJC is almost entirely volunteer led. This means you can help and shape action at our weekly meetings!
Some organizers discover that they really enjoy getting out and talking to people on our door-to-door canvas, while others, who prefer more solitude, contribute with research or data entry. Plenty of room for both!
Maybe you can make great signs for rallies, or hold one end of the MEJC banner during a walk.
You might be really good at organizing a whole letter writing campaign, or a simple evening gathering where people can write letters with help from MEJC organizers.
Whatever it is you are good at (even if you aren’t sure yet!) MEJC welcomes you, and offers training and mentoring to help you feel wonderful about yourself and everything you do.
