Do you want to make a difference this summer?
If you answered ‘YES’ to any of the questions above then read on…
The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization. Since 1982, they have worked to build support and win campaigns for some of the best progressive organizations across the country, including the Sierra Club, the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America. Their mission is to help these groups take on important fights and make sure they have the resources and public support it that takes to make a real difference. This summer the Fund for Public Interest will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns….and they are currently hiring students for paid summer positions on their campaign staff in each of the locations.
Here’s what the Fund for Public Interest has to say:
At the Fund for the Public Interest we’ve been fighting to protect the environment and standing up for the public interest for more than 25 years. We’ve helped cut global warming pollution with Environment America. And last December, we worked with the Human Rights Campaign, to organize the grassroots opposition needed to overturn Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.
We know that the challenges we face – from ending our dependence on oil, to winning the battle for equal rights, are huge – and the politicians and powerful interests who stupidly and stubbornly resist change aren’t calling it quits any time soon. Our opposition is emboldened, and working to block the change that our country needs.
America’s leading advocacy groups are gearing up to meet these challenges this summer. They know that to break the gridlock and win real change they’ll need a surge of citizen support and grassroots action. That’s where we come in.
We need people like you – lots of people like you – to go out in communities across the country this summer and help make change happen. And you can earn money doing it. Earn $4000-$6000 this summer. Hourly wage: $9-15/hr. Varies by location. Apply online at www.jobsforgoodcauses.org or call toll-free at 1-800-753-2784 and ask for Louis.
