Meals on Wheels of Alameda County’s strategy for the Census 2020 campaign will replicate the delivery model our programs utilize to deliver meals. The Meals on Wheels Census 2020 Outreach Team will serve as mobile questionnaire assistants. The team will initially distribute simplified information with key messages, explain why it is imperative, and record whether or not the senior will need assistance. During Census Day on April 1, the Meals on Wheels Census 2020 Outreach Team will visit with seniors who confirmed during the initial visit that they would require assistance with the questionnaire. 

The majority of clients that our Meals on Wheels programs serve will be hard-to-count during the Census 2020 for some of the following reasons:


  1. Many Meals on Wheels clients are living with at least one chronic health condition and also struggle with limited mobility, which would make traveling to a Census 2020 assistance center for assistance unlikely.

  2. Some Meals on Wheels clients are experiencing cognitive impairment, which makes even the most simple daily tasks such as brushing one’s teeth a tremendous struggle. 

  3. Many Meals on Wheels clients do not own or know how to use computers and/or tablets and cannot afford internet access.        

  4. Many Meals on Wheels clients are concerned about data privacy and confidentiality, fear of repercussions, and some distrust in government, especially given the current political climate.

  5. Some Meals on Wheels have limited English proficiency, which would make answering the questionnaire a struggle and could contribute to the overall low self-response rates among non-English speakers as demonstrated in the last census.

The campaign manager will be responsible for training the student interns and overseeing the successful execution of the mobile outreach and questionnaire assistance campaign. The interns will follow-up starting on April 1 with any seniors who confirmed that they would need assistance with completing the questionnaire. 

The following are core competencies necessary for success as the Outreach Manager:  


  • Impeccable attention to detail

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

  • Ability to manage multiple projects within designated timelines while delivering high-quality results.  

  • Flexible, proactive, creative, problem-solving attitude, including comfort with technology and basic information systems such as Microsoft Word, Excel, G Suite 

  • Excellent typing and data entry skills

  • A positive, can-do attitude

  • Strong time management and organizational skills

  • Experience in organizing campaigns and outreach activities

  • Recruit and manage interns from local colleges

  • Train interns to conduct outreach

This is a temporary position with an approximate start date of February 1, 2020 through July 30, 2020.
