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.

Jesus Torres 

Jesus is a public relations senior at UT Arlington and an avid Jolt Volunteer: 

Though I kind of knew my whole life, coming out wasn’t really a declaration of my sexuality for me. It was more like, “Okay, I’m a guy that happens to like other guys.” I knew that I didn’t want to go from one stereotype of who I was supposed to be to another. Being undocumented, queer and a first generation student I didn’t have a role model who could guide me through life. Working with Jolt, I know I’m giving my skills, my story and time to an organization that makes people like us, that walk this country with twice the anxiety, be heard in the political and social spectrum of Texas and America. It’s really a country for everyone, including us.
