US PIRG , Washington, DC
Do you think the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms makes no sense? Is overturning Citizens United one of the most important things we can do to put regular Americans back in the driver’s seat of our democracy? Do we need to go above and beyond to protect consumers from unsafe or unscrupulous practices?
If you agree, and if you’re willing to work harder than you’ll work at most jobs to win smart solutions on real problems that affect millions of lives, consider a job as a fellow with U.S. PIRG.
We look for smarts, leadership experience, top-notch written and verbal skills, and an eagerness to learn. We value organizing experience, including building campus groups.
What You’ll Do
This is a two-year program, expressly designed to prepare future leaders with U.S. PIRG. You won’t just sit behind a desk.

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