About Us

PIRG Campus Action works to organize, amplify, and empower students as we tackle the issues that shape our future.

We know college students have the power to make a difference. From the Freedom Riders of the ‘60s to the voter registration drives of today ... from the anti-apartheid movement of the ‘80s to the drive for fossil fuel divestment now -- students are always pushing our communities, our country and our world forward.

With PIRG Campus Action, you work with students to organize projects that promote clean energy, public health and a stronger democracy. You’ll be a trainer, an inspirer, a full-on changemaker and a behind-the-scenes support system for student activists, giving them the resources they need to unlock their full power to build a brighter future.

We’re hiring for positions in California, Massachusetts, Oregon, New Jersey, North Carolina and a few other states.
