Recruitment: Help recruit new staff, interns and volunteers to increase our impact and build more sway.

Management: Coordinate staff working on the campaign including organizers, advocates, and citizen outreach team. Recruit to add new staff over the course of the first two years.

Qualifications

Skills: We’re seeking applicants who are ready to commit their time, talent and passion to advocating, organizing and recruiting new leaders to protect the environment. We look for smarts, organizing experience and an eagerness to learn. We value leadership experience of all kinds, especially organizing, grassroots outreach and building campus groups.

Our Climate Defender Organizers will have the opportunity to apply for a career position with PennEnvironment and Environment America—the federation of state groups of which we’re a part—at the end of the campaign.

Organization Description

PennEnvironment has built one of the largest and most influential online organizing networks in the state with more than 130,000 supporters. Our online network has helped defeat legislation that would grant the fracking industry liability immunity in many cases by generating nearly 10,000 letters from Pennsylvanians in just 24 hours. We’ve helped defeat legislation that would undermine key climate policies. And, we’ve helped recruit hundreds of citizens to community events to highlight local environmental problems.

PennEnvironment is an equal opportunity employer and will not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, sex, age, disability, pregnancy, sexual orientation, or veteran status.

Fellowship @ Environment AmericaWed, 29 Mar 17 17:36:36 -0400http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=7135http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=7135Organization Name: Environment America
Location: 2 Locations: Washington DC (View Google Map); Boston, MA (View Google Map)
Job Post Date: 29 Mar 2017
Job Terms: Full Time
Salary: $25,500 annualy
Anticipated Start Date: As soon as possible

Job Description

Environment America runs campaigns to tackle global warming, stop fracking and protect the places we love. And we’re hiring.

Right now, we’re hiring entry-level staff looking to kick start their career in environmental action and advocacy through our fellowship program and for people to help run our digital campaigns.

We take pride in being strategic and disciplined—and in hiring a team with the grit it takes to get things done.

That’s how we approach each of our campaigns, whether we’re defending President Obama’s Clean Power Plan against coal industry attacks or convincing more communities and companies to go solar.



BE AN ENVIRONMENT AMERICA FELLOW

Imagine yourself organizing a town hall meeting on solar power. Or imagine releasing a hard-hitting research report on power plant pollution. Or picture yourself building a community coalition around clean water or fracking. Imagine building the organizational power—the funds, the membership, the activist base and so on—that it takes to keep all of this critical work going for the long haul.

All of this is what you do as an Environment America fellow. Because this is how we build the support it takes to reduce global warming pollution, create more solar and wind power, spare our parks and forests from fracking, keep our beaches, rivers and streams clean, and protect our wildlife and wild places. Is it easy? No, we’re up against some wily opponents who are incredibly well-funded. Is it rewarding? Absolutely. And given global warming, fracking and all of the tough problems we’re facing right now, can you imagine doing anything more urgent and meaningful?



BE A DIGITAL CAMPAIGNER

Work with one of our campaign teams to run a powerful digital campaign to help solve global warming, expand solar energy or protect clean water.

You’ll write emails and campaign actions that you’ll send to hundreds of thousands of supporters; design and curate content for social media, and engage with our national community; coordinate with our field team of five to nine campaign organizers, and back them up with emails, web pages and digital strategy; develop partnerships and creative online tactics to build our audience and raise money; analyze the results of your work, and report on successes and failures; and keep your projects on track, hold people accountable to their deliverables, and communicate regularly with your team.

LOCATION

Positions available in Washington, D.C or Boston, MA



PAY & BENEFITS

The target annual compensation for this position is $25,500 in the first year and $27,000 in the second year. Environment America offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.





Environment America is an equal opportunity employer and will not discriminate against any employee or applicant on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, age, sex, handicap, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity or veteran status.

Qualifications

Education Requirement: Bachelor's Degree (4 yrs. college)

Organizer @ Change CorpWed, 29 Mar 17 17:34:24 -0400http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=7134http://organizersforamerica.org/page.php?id=89&jobid=7134Organization Name: Change Corp
Job Post Date: 29 Mar 2017
Job Terms: Full Time

Job Description

We want change. We want less gun violence. We want all women to have access to birth control and health care. We want a better education for all children. Yet on issue after issue, the forces of reaction are strong and they’re pushing back. That’s where Change Corps comes in.

Change Corps offers a three-step training program to help you launch your career in social change. Step one: You take part in an intensive classroom training to learn and practice your organizing skills. Step two: You work directly with a group such as Everytown for Gun Safety, MoveOn or the National Education Association and take on the NRA, defend women’s rights, stand up for education, or work on other campaigns. Step three: We connect you with activist groups looking to hire full-time staff.

What will you work on?

Organizers attend an intensive classroom training and spend most of the year gaining hands-on field experience on issues like women’s rights, gun violence, immigration reform, voting rights, marriage equality and money in politics. Organizers will work throughout the year in cities across the country, providing critical field support for partner groups leading the charge on these issues and many more.

Training

You’ll learn the skills necessary to plan town hall meetings, build and work with coalitions united for a common cause, set up and speak at press conferences, recruit and train volunteers, collect petitions, direct a canvass office, and much more. You’ll learn how to mobilize a community toward a common goal and build the kind of support and grassroots action that persuades decision-makers to stop obstructing change and embrace it instead. And you’ll learn these skills from people like Bill McKibben of 350.org, Van Jones of CNN and Rebuild the Dream, and Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood.

Pay and Benefits

The target annual compensation for this position is $26,000 in the first year. Change Corps offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

Qualifications

Does social change get you fired up? We’re looking for:

Young leaders who are ready to take on some of the biggest challenges of our day.
Bright, talented, passionate people with a strong work ethic.
Problem solvers who don’t just see problems but envision creative solutions.
A strong commitment to working toward goals and getting results.
Outstanding verbal and written communication skills.
To Apply

Fill out our online application.
We'll carefully consider your application and if we think you're a good fit, we'll be in touch.
