Election Ambassador Corps

Election Ambassador Corps

Preparing the next generation for civic and political life is a constant endeavor, and no single project or approach is up to the task.

But for the greater Philadelphia-area, Seventy welcomes high school students to spend a few hours in the classroom learning about Philadelphia elections and a few hours at their local polling site speaking to voters and seeing democracy in action. Hundreds of students have participated in the Election Ambassador Program since its 2015 launch, learning about the upcoming election and why voting matters, assisting voters with questions about voting procedures and conducting an exit survey about various voting-related topics.
