Jolt Chapters

Jolt chapters bring together passionate, talented people to create real change for our communities.

Are you ready to make change and fight for the issues you care about? Find a group of friends and start a Jolt chapter at your high school, college or in your city.

When you start a chapter, you’ll be joining a network of young Latinos across Texas working to make our state a better place for everyone. Jolt chapter members work on the issues of racial and immigrant justice, climate change, and student debt. Download a digital toolkit below with everything you need to get started.

LatinXcellence: Member Spotlight

LatinXcellence is our campaign to highlight the achievements and accomplishments of the young people who make Jolt possible.

Victor Ibarra Jr. 

I got involved with Jolt on a whim – sorta! I remember first hearing about Jolt while I was finishing up college but it wasn’t until I moved to Houston that I got involved. It took me a few months but after settling into my new home and job, I had some free time to spare so I decided finding a place to volunteer would be a good idea. Considering my background as a Latino passionate about civic participation and Latinx representation at all levels of government, Jolt really fit the bill for what I was looking for in a volunteer program. Jolt also does a good job of advertising their volunteer programs on social media so after seeing one of their posts, I “slid” into Jolt’s DMs and asked about when and where I could volunteer. Since then, I have been consistently involved with almost all of Jolt’s volunteer projects and have found a new home with my new Jolt Familia!
