Volunteer opportunity description

Mayor Bill de Blasio announced on September 25 the launch of New York City Neighborhood Organizing Census Committees (“NOCCs”), a new program to recruit 2,500 volunteer “Census Ambassadors” citywide. NOCCs volunteers will engage in local census-related outreach, with the ultimate goal of significantly increasing New York City’s self-response rate in the 2020 Census.

Any New Yorker interested in joining a local NOCC can access an interactive map on that allows one to simply type in an address and see the average 2010 self-response rate for their neighborhood and, with just a few clicks, allows them to sign up for their local NOCC. Once a volunteer signs up, they will receive an e-mail within three business days informing them of upcoming Census 101 trainings, as well as providing them with information regarding census-related events across the city.
