The UFT has embarked on an ambitious door-knocking campaign to reach out to and engage as many UFT members as we can in face-to-face conversations about the value of union membership.
We are recruiting members for the second training weekend, which will take place on Saturday, Dec. 9 and Sunday, Dec. 10 at the Bronx UFT borough office.
You will receive training in member engagement, house-visit organizing skills, use of advanced technology tools, leadership, and union and community issues.
You will visit with members in their homes, mobilize supporters and identify grassroots leaders, all while helping to build the movement for great public schools for all children.
The position requires:
- strong communications skills and a passion for union activism and social justice.
- willingness to travel throughout the area where you live and work.
- being physically able of walking from door-to-door.
- commitment of either 18 four-hour shifts or 12 four-hour shifts over a period of 6-8 weeks
- access to a smartphone
- being comfortable using technology.
- an openness to all UFT members.
If you're selected, you'll be committing to a two-day training weekend, followed by 18 shifts of door-knocking over a period of 6-8 weeks. We will try to assign people to cover areas near where they live as much as possible. Each shift lasts four hours — on the weekend or from 4 to 8 p.m. on weekdays.
