  • Description:

    The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country.  We run campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America.  This summer we will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.

    Last summer our staff helped ban off-shore drilling to protect our coasts, repeal Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and increase food safety standards to make school lunches safer- all while building valuable leadership skills.

    Currently, we have paid positions open on our campaign staff in each of our locations.  We require that interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication skills.

    As a member of our staff, you will fund-raise, build membership for our partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues.  You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations.  While on staff, you gain knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process. 

    We will be holding information sessions and interviews at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor on March 12th, 13th and 14th at 10am, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm each day.  To learn the location of our information sessions and how to apply, please visit www.JobsThatMatter.org or call 1-800-75-EARTH (753-2784).
