Impact issues that matter this summer with the Fund!

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We run campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America. This summer we will be in over 50 cities, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.

Last summer our staff helped stop toxic gas drilling, worked to end subsidies for junk food, and built support for equal rights for all Americans- all while building valuable leadership skills. Currently, we have paid positions open on our campaign staff in each of our locations. We require that interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication skills.

As a member of our staff, you will fundraise, build membership for our partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues. You will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build coalitions with other non-profit organizations. While on staff, you gain knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the political process.

We will be holding information sessions and interviews at UVM on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday 4/7-4/9 at 10, 2, 4, and 6 in the Dudley H. Davis Student Center in the Rosa Parks Room.
