We need to save the planet, defend the public interest, and protect consumers. To achieve that, we need to imagine what society should look like in the future, and we need to overcome opposition by special interests in the present to get there. The future belongs to young people. It’s up to them to dream it up, and their idealism, energy, and vision will build the people power to make it a reality.
We know college students have the power to make a difference. From the Freedom Riders of the ‘60s to the voter registration drives of today, from the anti-apartheid movement of the ‘80s to the drive for fossil fuel divestment now — students are always pushing our communities, our country and our world forward.
With PIRG Campus Action, you’ll work with students who, like you, believe it’s our right, and responsibility to shape the future we all want. You’ll work with students to decide the strategies and tactics they’ll use to run campaigns that promote clean energy, public health, a stronger democracy and more.
As a Campus Organizer, you’ll:
Engage and mobilize hundreds of students on issues ranging from tackling climate change and getting big money out of politics to organizing voter registration drives and increasing recycling on campus.
Recruit and train students to plan and run effective campaigns on and off campus, using skills like organizing news conferences, building strong coalitions, generating grassroots support and direct advocacy.
Build a strong, sustainable student funded, student run organization on campus
Build relationships with other student groups, faculty and administrators
During the summer, each organizer runs a citizen outreach office. You’ll recruit and lead a team of canvassers to fundraise for important issues.
We’re hiring for positions in California, Massachusetts, Oregon, New Jersey, North Carolina and a few other states.
