Campaign Organizer, Impact, (Various Locations)

Our mission is to create the grassroots action, energy and power it takes to make an impact on important issues. We’re working on national campaigns to reduce global warming pollution, restore Clean Water Act protections to America’s streams, expand solar power across the country, end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, and counter the influence of Super PACs and billionaires over our elections.

Your campaign assignment will depend in part on where you applied to work and what issue we can make the biggest difference on in that state. For example, you might build the coalition that convinces a wavering senator in your state to vote the right way on crucial Clean Water Act protections. Or you could organize the news event that convinces the governor in your state that “going big on solar” is an opportunity to be a hero with the public.

The target annual compensation for this position is $25,500 in the first year and $27,000 in the second year. Impact offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

Application Deadline: February 14, 2016

Global Warming Campus Internship, Environment Massachusetts

Application deadline: September 30, 2015

“Global warming is happening and we’re seeing the effects all around us — from  dangerous heat waves and droughts to last winter’s snowstorms. And scientists warn it could get much worse unless we act soon.

“The good news: we have the solutions. Solar power is taking off, and we’re beginning to harvest energy from the winds off our shores.

“But powerful interests, including utility companies and the fossil fuel industry, are threatening to stop clean energy in its tracks.

“We’re looking for smart, hard-working students to build the people power it will take to repower Massachusetts with clean energy. Interns will work 4-7 hours per week from campus.”

Intern, Environment America (Washington, DC)

Climate change looms as the most pressing issue of our generation. Fracking has contaminated drinking water and made people sick across the country. Our rivers, lakes, and most treasured natural areas are vulnerable to mining, drilling and other harms.

There’s no lack of solutions to solve these challenges; there’s a lack of political will. That’s why Environment America is running grassroots campaigns to bring people together to convince our leaders to stop pandering to big polluters and climate deniers, and start getting behind the solutions. We are hiring interns for the 2015 semester to work.

To win positive change for the environment, you need a smart strategy and effective tactics. But most of all, you need grit and determination – because that’s what it takes to mobilize enough public support to win.

As an Environment America intern, you’ll be working with some of our with some of our most experienced advocates and organizers on campaigns to reduce global warming pollution, create more solar and wind power, spare our parks and forests from fracking, keep our beaches, rivers and streams clean, and protect our wildlife and wild places.

You’ll help craft and implement social media campaigns, generate traditional earned media through opinion writing, recruit community leaders to join our campaigns, collect petitions and other grassroots support, and research and write fact sheets and other materials for decision makers and opinion leaders.

 And if you’re graduating this year, you should apply to Environment America’s fellowship program, a two-year crash course in environmental organizing and advocacy. Find out more and apply at http://jobs.environmentamerica.org/
