Think Outside the Bottle- Water Campaign Internship (San Francisco, CA)
For 35 years, Corporate Accountability International has successfully challenged corporations like Nestlé, General Electric, and Philip Morris to halt abusive practices that threaten human rights, public health, the environment and our democracy. The organization is leading campaigns challenging some of the world's most powerful industries in food and agriculture, water and tobacco. Our internships are a unique opportunity to gain valuable organizing and non-profit experience. This is a hands-on program, designed to mentor and cultivate students interested in social justice, strengthen their understanding of a fast-paced campaign organization, and prepare them with the skills and experience necessary to challenge corporate abuse.
The Think Outside the Bottle Campaign Organizing Internship is a skills-building internship in which interns will take on significant projects to advance Corporate Accountability International's mission, including our Think Outside the Bottle campaign. Think Outside the Bottle is focused on building support for strong public water systems and challenging the misleading marketing of the bottled water industry. The projects will be coupled with training sessions on planning actions to advance the campaign, news monitoring, outreach to organize and educate people on the campaign, fundraising, reporter engagement, and many other topics.
