Fellow or Digital Campaigner, PIRG, (Various Locations)

PIRG stands for the Public Interest Research Group. We take on issues where the public needs a champion—someone to stand up to powerful interests when they push the other way. We know that smart policy solutions and real change won’t just happen. You need to organize, advocate and fight for them.

Fellows
Our fellows don’t just sit behind a desk. You’ll be out in the real world—recruiting new groups to join a coalition, speaking in a church basement or town hall to win a new endorsement, organizing a news event or rally, meeting with an editorial board, or doing whatever else it takes to urge our public officials to do the right thing. This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders within PIRG. We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value experience organizing, including building campus groups.

Digital Campaigners
Our digital campaigners help us design and win campaigns on some of the most important issues affecting the public today. This position is an exciting way to organize and motivate people online. Our online campaigns reach tens of thousands of people and spread the word about making change. This is a position for professionals who are ready to turn online skills into political action. We’re looking for people with sharp writing skills, savvy strategic ability, and a talent for using social media.
