The Borgen Project Iowa is a statewide campaign which builds the political will for legislation such as The Water for the World Act that benefits the world’s poorest.
Students and recent graduates can become involved as a regional director, a recruiter, or volunteer to call congressional leaders. Regional directors work to mobilize a group responsible for writing and calling congressional leaders on a weekly basis. Regional directors can also meet with senators and congressmen to find innovative ways to support key lesislation.
Time Committment: Regional directors’ hours range from 2-20 hours per week. Recruiters and call volunteers have the flexibility to create their own schedule.
Training: Training just involves a typical two week period of familiarizing volunteers with the project’s initiatives.
