    Career Opportunitites 

    This job gives recent graduates the opportunity to work with great people, gain real skills, and start making a difference on important issues right away! 
    Students are often at the forefront of movements to build a better future for our country. Whether or not those students make real progress depends on whether they are organized, have the skills to be effective and a strategic plan to get things done. For almost 50 years the Student PIRGs have gotten results, by recruiting, training and working alongside student activists on campaigns that make a difference.
    The Student PIRGs set out to increase youth voter turnout this Election cycle and organized youth mobilization campaigns in states across the country. Our efforts recruited more than 2,000 student leaders that helped make over 360,000 GOTV contacts to make sure students were heard on Election Day.The numbers are still coming in, but we know lots of young people have turned out! Our chapters on campuses across the country  will now continue to provide the resources students need to tackle climate change, protect public health, revitalize our democracy, feed the hungry and more.
