Jobs With Impact
WHAT YOU’LL DO WITH IMPACT
First, you’ll come together with other new and experienced staff from across the country to learn how to make your impact in classroom trainings that focus on the issues, our campaigns, our strategies and the tactics you’ll be using throughout the year. Then, you’ll put those skills to use in the field.
For example, you might build the coalition that convinces a major restaurant to stop serving meat raised on antibiotics. Or you could organize the news event that convinces the governor in your state that switching to more renewable energy is an opportunity to be a hero with the public. You’ll go to the places where you can make the biggest impact — states where there is a strategic need for you to be working to mobilize people, and you’ll be working on the campaign on which you can make the biggest difference.
HOW YOU’LL MAKE AN IMPACT
With Impact, you’ll go to the places that can decide whether we win or lose a campaign. And by engaging the media, building new coalitions, and activating civic leaders or student activists, you’ll set the stage for winning the next campaign. One district, one state at a time, Impact aims to move the dial in American politics in a positive direction.
During the summer, you’ll direct a campaign office, building the organization by canvassing and training others to canvass. And you’ll recruit the next wave of Impact organizers and interns so we can continue to work on more campaigns.
Impact organizers currently work in 25 states. We’re working with national campaigns to get our country to use renewable energy, ban the use of bee-killing pesticides, and end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.
With Impact, you make a difference now; the work you do builds the power we need to win more victories; and you gain the experience that PIRG, Environment America and other groups look for when hiring new advocates and campaign directors.
If you can see yourself next year organizing to make a difference for our health and environment, apply to join the Impact team.
PAY & BENEFITS
The target annual compensation for this position is $26,500 in the first year. Each of the groups that partner with Impact offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
