Participate as a Budget Delegate or Volunteer
Budget Delegates make the real work of PBNYC possible. Budget Delegates meet regularly in the fall and early winter to determine their community’s needs, project feasibility and work with city agencies and staff to develop proposals for their districts ballot.
Delegates must be at least 11 years old (or at least in 6th grade) and have a meaningful connection to the district. For example, live in the district, work in the district, own a business in the district, attend school in the district, or be a parent of a child attending school in the district.
There is a wide range of volunteer opportunities available through PBNYC:
Volunteer as a Poll Worker
Poll Workers are community members like you, who help coordinate and operate vote sites during Vote Week. After receiving training on voting rules and procedures, you may assist for a few hours or a few days.
Join your District Committee
Each participating Council Member convenes a District Committee that meets regularly to provide oversight and assists with planning throughout the PBNYC process. The District Committee should be representative of the entire district, both geographically and demographically. Are you interested in helping to ensure that PBNYC reaches everyone in your district? Would you like to provide input on outreach strategy and strengthen community participation?
Delegates, Volunteers, and Poll Workers make the real work of participatory budgeting possible. Sign up now to volunteer.
