Position: Campus Organizer
Application Deadline: February 11, 2014
Students have stood on the front lines of important social movements, from civil rights to gay rights to antiwar efforts. U.S. PIRG campus organizers tap student idealism and energy, and help student volunteers and activists turn their concerns into effective action. Campus organizers work on three to six campaigns in a semester, such as working to pass clean energy legislation, increasing youth voter turnout on campus, fighting hunger and homelessness in the local community, and other important public interest campaigns.
The role of a campus organizer is two-fold: to achieve concrete social change and to develop the next generation of leaders. Through this approach, campus organizers build the kind of power it takes to solve our country’s current problems while ensuring that their legacy continues well into the future. As a campus organizer you will build active, cohesive and visible campus chapters that are recognized by faculty and student leaders as assets to the campus community.Click here to apply for this position.
