Your Civic Engagement Can Raise Funds for HandsOn Suburban Chicago

Civic engagement and community service make up the core of what HOSC does. Always striving to connect people with purpose, we are partnering with the Cook County Clerk's Office to help recruit paid poll workers for the upcoming election on November 6th. HOSC will receive $25 for every election judge and equipment manager we recruit. The pay for election judges has increased from $190 to $200, and equipment managers make $340! 

This is a unique opportunity to learn about the election process, strengthen local democracy, get paid for your service, and raise funds for the agency you count on to deliver meaningful volunteer opportunities to your inbox!

Our democracy depends on good people like you to assist fellow citizens in casting their ballots and having their voices heard. Click here today to determine your eligibility and express interest. Those who are eligible will receive an official application via email.
