We’re hiring Canvass Office Directors to build and lead teams of canvassers that will fundraise and build support for some of our country's most pressing issues - tackling climate change, moving beyond single-use plastics, banning bee-killing pesticides, and more. We are hiring for immediate positions as well as positions starting in the fall.
As a Canvass Office Director, you and the canvass staff you hire and train will knock on doors and have face-to-face conversations to fundraise, mobilize people to get involved, and support some of the country’s leading non-profit groups, including Environment America and PIRG. Being a director requires that you work independently, exercise good judgment and work hard to meet your office’s staffing, campaign and fieldwork goals. You’ll develop communication and leadership skills that will last a lifetime, and you’ll be building the grassroots people power that’s behind all social change.

We work on campaigns and in locations that we think will make the biggest difference. We are running campaigns in CA, CO, IL, MA, NM, OR, WA, and Washington, D.C.
