Become a Census Ambassador!


Become a Census Ambassador! 

Are you a trusted messenger and wish to lead outreach in your community? Learn more & sign-up to volunteer!

The application for Alameda County's Census Ambassador Program is now live! The Census Ambassador Program is how organizations and individuals sign up to support outreach – by committing to do one of the following:

  • Host an event where people can complete the Census! Ideas include: Census Block Party, Census Sabbath potluck, Family Census Night, Census Forum, or another type of gathering that would be engaging for your network!
  • Adopt-A-Block – ensure all of your neighbors are counted and are trained to answer their questions!
  • Host a Questionnaire Assistance Center – Ideal for nonprofits, schools, clinics, or other sites with regular foot traffic and the ability to host a space for a tablet or computer for Census taking. Sites can use their own technology or request devices from the County. Staffing of sites is not required but welcomed, or sites can request volunteers to provide users with assistance.     
  • Volunteer to support people at QAC’s or to table at events (Numerous opportunities between February – July 2020)
  • All Census Ambassadors are provided training and materials for their outreach!
