Student PIRGs Info Session - Learn about Careers to Make a Difference

Students have been, and continue to be at the forefront of movements to build a better future for our country. But students only make real progress when they’re organized, have the skills to be effective, and have a strategic plan to get things done. That’s where we come in: For almost 50 years, the Student PIRGs have been working to amplify the power of student activism. We help students make real change, right now, that will help all Americans to live meaningful lives and have a greener and healthier future.

For example, PIRG students are working to ensure young people are full participants in the political process by helping to turn out the vote in local, state and national elections through our New Voters Project. In the fall of 2020, we made nearly 400,000 peer-to-peer personal reminder contacts in the weeks leading up to Election Day. Our hard work paid off and we saw record turnout among young people. We’re keeping up this momentum and aim to help more than 50 campuses get to full voter participation by building strong coalitions on campus that reach all students — from the College Democrats and the College Republicans, to Greek Life organizations and sports teams, to multicultural groups and student governments.

We all want to live meaningful lives in a world that's greener and healthier. That's the future our campus organizers work to build every day. If you want a career working with great people, gaining real skills and start making a difference on important issues right away, this could be a good fit for you.
