Work on PennEnvironment’s campaign for renewable energy.
The Fund for the Public Interest is partnering with PennEnvironment. We’re seeking hard-working individuals with great communication skills and a passion for social change to fill campaign staff and field manager positions in Philadelphia this winter.
Join the outreach team as we educate and engage the citizens of Pennsylvania on our campaign to get the state to commit to 100% renewable energy.
We have the power to harness clean, abundant energy from the sun and the wind, and we can do it more efficiently and cheaply than ever before. Yet we’re still producing, consuming and wasting energy in ways that do lasting damage to our environment and our health -- fracking for gas near schools instead of putting solar panels on their roofs; drilling for oil near beaches instead of harnessing the winds that blow offshore; and burning coal, oil and gas instead of powering our homes, cars and lives with clean, renewable energy.
Positions: We're hiring campaign staff and field managers to go out into communities, knock on doors to talk to people and raise awareness, build support for the campaign and raise money for PennEnvironment. Our positions are full-time and you can expect to earn an average of $10-$15/hr.
