Come help create Census outreach packets with us!

United Way Bay Area (UWBA) was selected through a competitive application process to serve as the “Administrative Community Based Organization” (ACBO) for the State of California’s Complete Count efforts. As the administrative backbone for regional census outreach, United Way Bay Area (UWBA) is leading an effort across seven counties to ensure a complete count in the Bay Area. We’ve distributed over $1.5M in grants and have invested heavily in technical assistance to support our hundreds of partners across the government, nonprofit, labor, and business sectors. A significant element of the Bay Area Counts 2020 strategy is questionnaire assistance – creating safe, accessible spaces for community members to complete their census online or by phone. To ensure a consistent experience across more than 500 “Questionnaire Assistance Centers” and “Questionnaire Assistance Kiosks”, we are building turnkey “QAC/QAK Kits” to provide our partners. These kits include signage, printed guides in 59 languages, giveaways for client, and more. The Opportunity When: Monday, February 24th and Tuesday, February 25th Food and beverages provided 6 shifts are available, 2.5 hours each: Monday, 2/24 – 9am, 12pm, 3pm and 5:30pm Tuesday, 2/25 – 9am and 5:30pm Where: United Way Bay Area, 550 Kearny Street, First Floor, San Francisco What: Help us prepare and pack QAC/QAK Kits by counting materials and packing them into boxes for transport.
