Delegates and Facilitators make the real work of democracy possible. Delegates meet regularly in the fall and early winter to narrow down the list of project ideas, research the community’s needs, and work with city agencies and staff to develop concrete proposals for the ballot. Facilitators guide the Delegates in this process, helping them focus on equity and meet key deadlines. Join a committee that most interests you — like Parks, Transportation, Public Safety, Education, Youth, Public Housing, and Arts & Culture! 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. Sign up here or contact your district with questions.
Poll workers are community members like you, who help operate vote sites during Vote Week to bring the ballot to the people. Volunteers receive training, and can then work for a few hours or a few days. Sign up here!
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? Contact staff in your district office to learn more.
Join the PBNYC Citywide Committee
The PBNYC Citywide Committee guides and supports the PB process across participating districts. The Committee is made up of community based organizations, Council Member Staff, District Committee members from Council Districts and individual members representing their community.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more or apply.
(We are no longer accepting applications for Cycle 8. Please check in late spring to apply for the Citywide Committee. Thank you)
