Overview

ARE YOU AN ORGANIZER?

An organizer is someone you need when simply standing up for what’s right isn’t enough to make a difference.

Imagine you want to change something, but you’re faced with resistance. The only way you can win is to get lots of people to join together to take the right action at the right time. That’s what an organizer does. And with Impact, that’s what you’ll do for our environment, our democracy, and our future.

ORGANIZE FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT, OUR DEMOCRACY, AND OUR FUTURE

Impact is a team of organizers, working on behalf of groups like PIRG and Environment America.

Our partner groups have researchers, policy analysts and lobbyists who work together for that better future. But, as you can imagine, research and lobbying are not always enough to get things done in American politics. It often takes organizers. And when it’s crunch time on a high-priority campaign, that’s when the Impact team moves in.

HOW YOU’LL MAKE AN IMPACT

With Impact, you’ll go to the places that can decide whether we win or lose a campaign. And by engaging the media, building new coalitions, and activating civic leaders or student activists, you’ll set the stage for winning the next campaign. One district, one state at a time, Impact aims to move the dial in American politics in a positive direction.

During the summer, you’ll direct a campaign 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.

Impact 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.

With Impact, you make a difference now; the work you do builds the power we need to win more victories; and you gain the experience that PIRG, Environment America and other groups look for when hiring new advocates and campaign directors.

If you can see yourself next year organizing to make a difference for our health and environment, apply to join the Impact team.

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.

We share a set of core values and a strategic approach to making positive change. Click here for things you should know about our network when you apply.
