Together we are #GenerationEuropa
Do you think that change is only possible if you do politics? Do you also feel that you are not represented by existing political parties?

If you click on the "Become a member" or "Become a volunteer" button you will be directed to our membership application website. Enter your email address, select your membership type and complete the questionnaire. Then (please give us a few days) you will be contacted by a Volt member for a short introductory interview - your chance to ask questions about Volt and an opportunity for us to find out which teams in our network might be of interest to you. You will then be given access to our online work space, you get a Volt email address and can get started right away.
We all support Volt on a voluntary basis - so there is no need to invest a fixed number of hours unless you apply for an official position at the national or European level. In general, we are happy if you find your own interests within Volt and if you can contribute in your own way.
If you have more questions regarding membership or concerning Volt in general please send us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
