Fellows, U.S. P.I.R.G. (Washington D.C., Chicago, Boston)

We’re hiring Fellows to work on big problems: whether it’s stopping the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, checking the influence of billionaires and Super PACs over our elections, giving consumers the right to know if GMOs are in their food, passing new recycling laws, or promoting smart transportation options for a 21st century economy.

At PIRG, we know that a smart policy solution or real change won’t just happen. You need to organize, advocate and fight for it. By becoming a Fellow with U.S. PIRG, you will learn how to become an experienced organizer and advocate for the public interest.

What Fellows Do

Our Fellows don’t just sit behind a desk. We need people who are willing to work hard to advocate for the public interest — whether it’s by developing campaigns, building coalitions, mobilizing and organizing the public, showcasing our work online and in the media, or making our case directly to decision makers.

This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders within PIRG.

The powerful industries have their lobbyists. That’s why we need people like you to ensure the public’s voice is heard, that decision makers do the right thing, and to keep fighting to solve more of America’s problems.

Qualifications

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.
