December or May Grad? StudentPIRG is Hiring Campus Organizers

Do you want to make a difference post graduation? 

Early Application Deadline 1/28 

The Student PIRGs is hiring graduating seniors to be full-time organizers on campuses across the country. Below is a bit more about the position and how to apply before our Early Application Deadline. 

Students are often at the forefront of movements to build a better future for our country. But students only make real progress when they are organized, have the skills to be effective, and a strategic plan to get things done. That’s where we come in: For almost 50 years the Student PIRGs have been working to amplify the power of student activism and help students make real change, right now, to help all Americans to live meaningful lives and to have a future that's greener and healthier. For example, this fall our New Voters Project is working to make sure that young people — the largest and most diverse group of potential voters in the country — turn out to vote at historic rates. That means adapting quickly to the new landscape of voting during a pandemic to ensure young voters know when and where to vote, and how to do so safely. In an online world, young people are uniquely set up to organize others, and we’re looking to combine that power with recent momentum we’ve gained on this issue — youth voter turnout doubled in the 2018 elections.

Building relationships with other student groups, faculty and administrators. Working alongside students to win real reforms for the public.
