Jolt Initiative seeks multiple part-time Voter Registration Organizers to build the power of young voters across the state.
Jolt Initiative, a 501c3 non-profit organization, believes young Latinos will transform Texas through the power of their vote. Jolt believes that Texas is poised for change, with a growing and disaffected Latino population. Today, 1 in 3 eligible voters in Texas is Latino and projections indicate that by 2030, Latinos will make up the majority of the state’s population. But demographics alone aren’t destiny. Winning change requires building a homegrown movement and a smart, focused, long-term strategy that can deliver equality and power to those who are most excluded and often first impacted.
