NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS

Our Rising Stars initiative initially began as an award and, over the years, has developed into an organized program that recognizes an elite group of Houstonians who have contributed to civic life and are poised to do much more.

Through this program, we offer a year of training and volunteer opportunities for these selected leaders of all ages to share their talents and expand their reach as champions of civic engagement. Participants attend a series of monthly class sessions that range from meeting with leaders of active political parties in Houston to learning how to become a VDVR and participating in naturalization ceremonies.

Apply today to be part of the 2022-2023 Cohort.

OUR INITIATIVES

Naturalization Ceremonies

With the partnership of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services, our volunteers are a presence at Naturalization Ceremonies to register new voters. Before Covid, we would routinely provide an on-the-spot service, each year helping more than 25,000 new citizens register to vote shortly after they’ve taken the oath of citizenship.

Voters Guide

Our nonpartisan Voters Guide is Houston's best election information source with everything you need to know about voting, candidates and ballot issues. It’s now available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese.

Reserve a Voter Registrar

We deploy Volunteer Deputy Voter Registrars (VDVRs) across the greater Houston area, allowing you to register people to vote at your next event. Read more about our efforts that have registered more than 21,500 new citizens to vote this year alone.

Phone Banking

In partnership with KPRC-TV, League volunteers participate in phone banking on Election Day—answering questions about polling locations, registration status and other voter requirements. They work to ensure that anyone who is registered to vote can participate in the political process by casting a ballot.

Candidate Conversations

Every election year, we host educational forums with candidates running for office in Houston and Harris County. Every candidate is invited to join in the conversation and asked questions based on the jurisdiction where they are seeking office.

Rising Stars

Through our Rising Stars program, we offer a year of training and volunteer opportunities for a selected elite group of leaders of all ages to share their talents and expand their reach as champions of civic engagement.
