CAREERS IN ORGANIZING

Students have been at the forefront of social change throughout history, from civil rights, to voting rights to protecting the environment.

Our 35 chapters on campuses provide the training, professional support and resources students need 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 will --

• Engage and mobilize hundreds of students

• Train students to run effective campaigns, using skills like organizing news conferences, building strong coalitions, generating grassroots support, and coordinating lobby days

• Build a strong, sustainable, student-funded, and student-run organization on campus

• Build relationships with other student groups, faculty and administrators

• Run a citizen outreach office during the summer, where you’ll recruit and lead a team of canvassers to fundraise for important issues

QUALIFICATIONS

Qualified candidates will have a demonstrated commitment to environmental, public interest, and/or student power issues, as well as a track record of leadership. We're looking for goal-driven and results-oriented individuals who have excellent communication skills and enthusiasm for the work.
