PRIG Campus Action Employment: Application Due Oct. 25th

PIRG Campus Action is a project of the PIRG student chapters. Our organizers work on college campuses across the country to empower students to make a difference on critical environmental and social issues.

If we’re serious about climate change, we can’t afford to drag our feet — so we’re pushing cities and states to commit to 100% renewable energy, now. We rely on bees to pollinate our food, yet we’re allowing some pesticides to drive them toward extinction — so we’re working to ban these bee-killing pesticides. The overuse of antibiotics on factory farms is putting millions of lives at risk — so we’re urging big chains like KFC to stop doing business with these farms. In short, we’re organizing to make a difference right now.

We’re looking for people who have the passion and the drive it takes to win positive change on these important issues, and who aren’t afraid of hard work. If that sounds like you, consider working with us.

If you become an organizer with PIRG Campus Action, you’ll organize and build the campus chapter into something that works — now, and for years to come. You’ll recruit hundreds of students to volunteer and get involved, and teach them how to plan and run effective campaigns through internships and on-the-ground training. You’ll build relationships with faculty and administrators, while organizing news events and rallies, and generating the grassroots support it takes to win campaigns. During the summer, you’ll run a citizen outreach office, building the organization by canvassing and training others to canvass. And you’ll learn from some of the best organizers in the country — people who have been doing this work for more than 30 years.

The target annual compensation for this position is $26,000 in the first year. PIRG Campus Action offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

We’re hiring organizers to work on college campuses in California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Oregon and a few other states.

Find the application at:

Applications are due October 25th!

PIRG Campus Action is an equal opportunity employer and will not discriminate against any employee or applicant on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status.

Calling all gardeners, green thumbs, and bee lovers. Help us kick off this new project at a fall planting volunteer event on November 17th. At the first planting event volunteers will plant native pollinator plants along the Burke Gilman Trail just west of Gasworks Park.
