Internship Description  Application Information

Change doesn't just happen.
It takes hard work from dedicated individuals to build grassroots organizations from the ground up. This is more true today than ever before. Big, powerful special interests actively fight sensible solutions to environmental problems, government corruption and discrimination, so elected officials only act to bring about those solutions when they know the public is informed and ready to  take action.

What you'll do:
You will work in the political arena, getting your hands dirty, building organizations and fighting for the victories that put us on a more sustainable and more democratic course.

The heart of the job is canvassing. In order to build the necessary citizen support, you will go out into communities and go door-to-door, or go into public places and talk with people about the issues, raise money, and build membership for the great organizations we work with.

You have the opportunity to work with the media, help build coalitions with other organizations and mobilize activists to help us win our campaigns.

Campaign staff will make $400-$600 each week.
