Work with Environment America Think bold? Work hard? We’re hiring.

Environment America is hiring summer field organizers to help us fight global warming!

Background
2016 was the hottest year ever recorded. And in 2015, 72 U.S. cities had more than 100 days with dangerous air. At a time when we need to be moving forward to protect our health and climate, President Trump and the Congress are moving backward – dismantling dozens of important environmental protections. This summer, Environment America will be building public support in politically critical states across the country to defend against attacks to our air and climate. We’ll organize to guard against rollbacks to the Clean Air Act, clean car standards, and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Job Description
That’s where you come in. Environment America’s summer field organizers will work to generate media attention, mobilize hundreds of citizens across their states, and build diverse coalitions of organizations and opinion leaders to push for action. Our summer field organizers will also spend two weeks working with our citizen outreach offices to recruit new members and raise money through canvassing to support the campaign.

Timeline
This position begins in May and ends in August. Our summer field organizers will have the opportunity to apply for a career position with Environment America at the end of the campaign.

Location
Columbus, OH
Washington, DC or Richmond, VA

Training
There will be a week-long training in Washington D.C. near the beginning of the campaign.

Compensation and Benefits
Target annual compensation for this position is commensurate with the relevant professional experience and/or advanced degrees that a candidate has. Environment America offers a competitive benefits package.

Summer Field Organizing is an incredible opportunity for both experienced and brand new organizers who want to gain skills in environmental activism and organizing. We offer an excellent training program and work to place our organizers with organizations working for change after the summer campaign.

Qualifications
We’re seeking applicants who are ready to commit their time, talent and passion to advocating, organizing and fighting for the environment. We look for smarts, academic excellence, and an eagerness to learn. We value leadership experience of all kinds, especially organizing, grassroots outreach and building campus groups.
