Fund for the Public Interest summer campaign positions open

Fund for the Public Interest, a national non-profit organization, runs campaigns for some of the nation’s most prominent environmental and social change organizations, such as Environment America and U.S. PIRG. 

They are currently hiring students to join their summer campaign staff in more than 30 different cities across the country. Students will get the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in grassroots organizing, learn valuable communication skills and have the opportunity to participate in a variety of campaign actions including: running media events, coalition building, canvassing, and writing editorials, all while being paid as members of their staff. Their staffs typically earn an average of $4,500-$6,500 over the summer.

Students will get the chance to work on a wide spectrum of campaigns ranging from environmental issues like working to reduce global warming and fight fracking, to public health issues like stopping the use of antibiotics on factory farms or fighting for restrictions on cancer-causing herbicides.

We will be holding information sessions and interviews on campus Tuesday 2/28,  Wednesday 3/1, and Thursday 3/2  and want to meet with as many interested students as possible while on campus.  To apply, please visit www.SummerJobsThatMatter.org or call 1-800-75-EARTH (1-800-753-2784).
