Census Ambassador Training


National Coalition for Literacy


United States

The Census Ambassador Trainings prepared adult students to support others to fill out the census, especially in hard-to-count communities where the effect of not being counted can have devastating effects on community access to healthcare, education, jobs, and essential services. We developed materials designed to teach basic skills in the context of information about the censuswhy it matters, how to fill out the form, and how to respond to concerns about privacy. Hundreds of teachers in adult education programs across the country coached their students to become Census Ambassadors. The training was adapted for remote learning (due to the pandemic), and students used digital strategies to communicate with friends, family, and community members about the importance of the census.
