JOB: Opening with the Fund for the Public Interest, Amherst, MA


Are you a graduating senior? Start your non-profit career with the Fund for the Public Interest! We’re currently hiring graduating seniors to run our grassroots campaign offices across the country as Citizen Outreach Directors.

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that runs grassroots campaigns for some of the nation’s leading environmental and progressive non-profits. For over 30 years, our organization has increased the visibility, membership and political power of over 40 organizations.

Our work directly enables partner organizations like Environment America, US PIRG and the Human Rights Campaign to expand their donor base and pass tougher legislation against air pollution, forest clear-cutting, hate crimes, and special interest money in politics. We owe our success to the fusion of our staff’s grassroots organizing experience, cost-conscious attitude and work ethic with our partner groups’ issue expertise, initiative and vision.

Recent victories include: helping the Human Rights Campaign pass the Matthew Shepherd Act, which adds sexual orientation and gender identity to the national hate crime laws; working with USPIRG to pass landmark healthcare reform; and giving Environment America the public backing necessary to convince the Obama Administration to issue the first-ever nationwide standards for mercury pollution from power plants.

Citizen Outreach Directors run one of over 60 regional campaign offices across the country and are responsible for organizing membership building and grassroots campaigns for any one of our partner organizations, such as the ones mentioned above.

We’re looking for smart, socially conscious graduating seniors who work well in a team and are eager to make a real impact on some of the most critical issues facing our society. If you are looking for a position that provides real immediate responsibilities and the opportunity to make an immediate impact towards social change, apply today.

We will be holding an information session on Monday March 18th at 6pm and interviews on Tuesday March 19th. To find out more information about these events, contact me via email at: or by phone at: (201)-403-6021.
