Impact issues that matter this summer with the Fund!

The Fund for the Public Interest is a national non-profit organization that
works to build support for progressive organizations across the country. We
run campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, USPIRG, and Environment America.  This summer we will be in over 50 cities, including our local Maryland office in College Park, working and lobbying to help win environmental and social justice campaigns.

Last summer our staff helped stop toxic gas drilling, worked to end subsidies
for junk food, and built support for equal rights for all Americans- all
while building valuable leadership skills. Currently, we have paid positions
open on our campaign staff in each of our locations. We require that
interested candidates are hard workers and have excellent communication
skills. As a member of our staff, you will fundraise, build membership for our
partner groups, and educate and activate citizens on pressing issues. You
will also have the opportunity to organize press conferences and build
coalitions with other non-profit organizations. While on staff, you gain
knowledge of pressing concerns our country is facing, learn how to
effectively generate public support, and obtain a firm understanding of the
political process.
