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 save Oregon’s oldest trees. Our forests, especially our oldest trees in places like the Willamette and Umpqua National Forests, help make Oregon a special place to live, providing habitat for thousands of species. They are critical allies in the fight against climate change—one that we lose the moment we cut them down. This year, we have an opportunity to take a huge first step and protect all of the old-growth forests in the national forest system from logging. Thanks to the organizing we’ve done in the past year on this campaign, the administration is considering a plan to protect these trees, but we know the timber companies will lobby against it. We have until the end of the summer to show the Biden administration there’s overwhelming support to let trees grow, so we’re hiring staff to mobilize that support. 

As a canvasser you will:

  • Educate and engage citizens, build support and fundraise on pressing issues
  • Get experience with the leadership and communication skills and connections needed to launch your career
  • Build membership and raise money for environmental and social change groups

Pay:

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. Staff never earn less than minimum wage for the hours that they work. 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.

Benefits*:

  • Medical, dental and vision insurance for employees and dependents
  • Commuter benefit program
  • 401(k) with employer match
  • Paid time off
  • Excellent training program
  • Opportunities for advancement

*Eligibility for benefits depends on your position, location, duration of employment, and other factors.
