Our volunteers program offers students a chance to get to know the inner workings of a congressional campaign, while building real-world skills in their area of interest and gaining knowledge that will prepare them for future success. Volunteers have the opportunity to work on a variety of projects, including social media, canvassing, events, and much more. There are also many benefits available to volunteers, including approval of volunteer hours, certification of volunteering, and a potential letter of recommendation from the candidate.
Volunteers will learn from experienced team leads and area experts during their work with our office. All work is voluntary and students will not receive any monetary compensation. Thank you for your interest in serving our community, and I encourage you to join our team.
Councilmember, City of Palo Alto
2022 Congressional Candidate for CA-16 (Silicon Valley)
Greg Lin Tanaka was born in Los Angeles to a Japanese-American father and a Chinese-American mother. Raised in a single parent household, he went on to attend the California Institute of Technology and the University of California, Berkeley. Greg moved permanently to the Bay Area in 1993, settling down in Palo Alto’s College Terrace neighborhood in 2004. He is a father, an entrepreneur and devoted public servant, someone with the experience necessary for competent leadership and the outsider’s perspective central to innovative policy solutions.

His campaign is built on the belief that Silicon Valley and its residents deserve representation prepared for the challenges and opportunities of a new digital age.
