HeadCount is adding Team Leaders all across the country. Team Leaders are the heart and soul of HeadCount and are the people most responsible for registering thousands of voters at concerts, festivals, and community events. They represent the organization any time a HeadCount-affiliated artist appears in the team’s metropolitan area. Within their metro, Team Leaders also work with venues, promoters, and community event organizers to identify the best local opportunities to register voters.
This means organizing and scheduling teams of volunteers (using HeadCount’s volunteer portal), training new volunteers and managing the process of setting up a voter registration table at an event. It also involves directly interfacing with staff at local concert venues and tour production crews from our affiliated bands.
Team Leaders also reach into their community to identify gaps in voter registration access and provide registration services. This could be at high schools, street fairs, or other relevant community events. The goal is for at least 25% of annual activations to come from community events.
Team Leaders must be reliable, professional, and good communicators. Most of all, they need to inspire volunteers to work together toward a common goal. If you love music and consider yourself a natural leader, this may be the position for you.
This is considered a volunteer position, but Team Leaders are eligible for a yearly performance-based stipend of up to $1,500.
