Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Calling all high school students!

Just because you can’t vote doesn’t mean you can’t get involved in the federal election, and even if you can, voting isn’t the only way to get politically engaged. Get out and volunteer on a campaign! It’s an incredible experience and resume builder.

CJPAC acts as a political concierge to connect you to the campaign of your choice. We can help you complete your mandatory volunteer requirements (where applicable) and gain meaningful experience.
