"The Fund for the Public Interest is seeking hard-working individuals with good communication skills and a passion for social change to fill citizen outreach and Field Manager positions across the country this summer.
If you are looking to make a difference working to protect the environment and public health, gain real-world work experience and skills you can use, make money and work with great people, then this is the job for you.
The Fund for the Public Interest is a national, non-profit organization that runs campaigns for America's leading environmental and social change organizations, like Environment America. We launched the Fund in 1982 to help find ways to engage people on the most pressing problems of our day and turn that support into solutions. By having face-to-face one-on-one conversations we give thousands, sometimes millions of people the opportunity for their voices to be heard, through petitions, emails, small donations and meetings. That's people power, and that's what it takes to make change.
This summer we will be working with U.S. PIRG, and Environment America, to stand up to polluters, tackle global warming to keep pesticides out of our food supply.
Currently we have paid Canvasser and Field Manager positions open in 25+ cities across the country. These are full-time summer positions available from May through August at an average of $500-650 per week.
