Student PIRGs

About the organization

Students are often at the forefront of movements to build a better future for our country. Whether or not those students make real progress depends on whether they are organized, have the skills to be effective and a strategic plan to get things done. The Student PIRGs have been working for over 40 years to amplify the power of student activism, and help students make real change, right now. We all want to live meaningful lives and have a future that's greener and healthier. By recruiting, training and working alongside student activists on campaigns that get results, our organizers are helping to build that future today. Our chapters on 35 campuses provide the training, professional support and resources students need to tackle climate change, protect public health, revitalize our democracy, feed the hungry and more.

Duties

Responsibilities include:

-Inspiring and recruiting hundreds of students to take action on important issues.

-Training students to be effective social change leaders so they can run strategic campaigns, using skills like organizing news conferences, building strong coalitions, generating grassroots support, and coordinating lobby days.

-Building relationships with other student groups, faculty and administrators.

-Working alongside students to win real reforms for the public.

-Running a citizen outreach office during the summer, where you’ll recruit and lead a team of canvassers to fundraise for important issues.
