The Harris County Democratic Party is looking for hardworking, passionate, future organizers to join our virtual Leadership Academy this Fall. Harris County Democrats won BIG In 2020 and swept every county-wide Democrat into office -- even without the advantage of straight-ticket voting! That’s a testament to the level of voter engagement and the work that was done in making sure local candidates got the support they needed.

Now we're working towards flipping Texas blue in 2022!

This program provides a unique learning opportunity for volunteer leaders to gain hands-on exposure to grassroots organizing, strengthen your understanding of the political process, and help us prepare to elect the progressive leaders in our community. Participants will have the chance to organize their community virtually in grassroots efforts, such as phone banking and texting.


  • Participate in virtual phone banks to identify Democratic supporters

  • Recruit, train, and manage volunteers to build our volunteer capacity

  • Assist with special projects and tasks in other areas as needed


  • An interest in politics and identify as a Democrat or Progressive

  • Access to internet and computer/smart device for virtual participation

  • Quick to learn and keen attention to detail

  • Commitment to maintaining confidentiality and discretion
