Work for Progress seeks Election Canvassers to help us elect candidates who will fight to reverse global warming, get big money out of politics and help young people deal with the rising cost of college and student debt. Applicants should be friendly, outgoing, politically savvy, and creative. You will work with a team of committed canvasser activists to have face to face conversation with voters in critical districts this summer and fall.


We know that elections are not the beginning or the end of social change activism. To create meaningful change, we need to build people power and run smart campaigns to influence elected and corporate decision-makers. But elections can help, especially when there is a big difference between the candidates on important issues.


For the 2018 election, Work For Progress is partnering with Penn Environment and Environment America Action Fund to help elect Tom Wolf as Governor and other candidates who will fight for our environment.
