Jobs with Impact: New Opportunities to Protect our Environment and our Democracy

unnamed-5Apply to Impact today!
Early application deadline is Jan. 19th
 

Impact is a project of Environment America and U.S. PIRG that creates the grassroots action and power it takes to make an impact on important issues. By joining Impact, you’re making a full-time, two-year commitment to advocate for our environment, our democracy and our future.

Our organizers currently work in 25 states. We’re working with national campaigns to get our country to 100 percent renewable energy, ban the use of bee-killing pesticides, and end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

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. Your campaign assignment will depend in part on where you applied to work and where you can make the biggest difference.

HOW YOU’LL MAKE AN IMPACT 

Even when there’s not a vote coming up, organizing helps build long-term power to secure victories in the future. By first educating people on an issue, and then connecting on shared values and common-sense solutions, we lay the groundwork for political change.

It’s all challenging, fun and incredibly meaningful. We’re taking on big issues and we’re up against big adversaries. We run campaigns with concrete goals, detailed plans, rigorous training, and above all, a laser-like focus on results.

During the summer, you’ll run a citizen outreach 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. So if what you want to do after college is join a team of people who bring their passion to work every day to make an impact on issues that matter, then we’re the group for you.

PAY & BENEFITS 

The target annual compensation for this position is $26,000 in the first year. Impact offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
