Who We Are:
The Fund for the Public Interest is seeking hard-working individuals with good communication skills and a passion for social change to fill citizen outreach and field manager positions across the country this summer. With offices in selected cities across the country this summer, we are hiring full-time staff, with leadership opportunities available, to work on issues like stopping plastic pollution, saving the bees, and moving towards a 100% clean energy future.
This summer in our Portland office, we're working to pass a statewide ban on polystyrene foam. Every day Oregonians throw away millions of single-use plastic containers and other plastic “stuff.” One of the worst forms of plastic pollution is polystyrene foam, the plastic they use to make foam coffee cups and takeout containers. Polystyrene can take hundreds of years to fully degrade and can’t be recycled. Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our future for hundreds of years. So we are working to pass a statewide ban on foam.
As a canvasser you will:
Staff earn a base pay between $15 to $18 per hour, which varies by location, plus may earn an additional $1 to $10 per hour or more for exceeding the minimum performance standard.

So, depending on location and performance, you could earn an average of between $15.50 and $25 per hour and may earn as much as $28 per hour.
*Eligibility for benefits depends on your position, location, duration of employment, and other factors.
