Campus Action Organizer
Posted on: February 12, 2018
PIRG Campus Action is a project of the PIRG student chapters. Our organizers work with students on college campuses across the country, giving them the resources they need to unlock their full power to build a brighter future.
We know college students have the power to make a difference. From the Freedom Riders of the ‘60s to the voter registration drives of today, from the anti-apartheid movement of the ‘80s to the drive for fossil fuel divestment now, students — past, present and future — are always pushing our communities, our country and our world forward.
What you’ll do
With PIRG Campus Action, you’ll work with students who, like you, believe it’s our right and responsibility to shape the future we all want. You’ll work with students to decide the strategies and tactics they’ll use to run campaigns that promote clean energy, public health, a stronger democracy and more.
As an organizer on campus, you’ll:
- Engage and mobilize hundreds of students on issues ranging from tackling climate change and getting big money out of politics, to organizing voter registration drives and increasing recycling on campus
- Recruit and train students to plan and run effective campaigns on and off campus, using skills like organizing news conferences, building strong coalitions, generating grassroots support and direct advocacy
- Build a strong, sustainable, student-funded, student-run organization on campus
- Build relationships with other student groups, faculty and administrators
- Run a citizen outreach office during the summer, where you’ll recruit and lead a team of canvassers to fundraise for important issues
