Campaign Positions with Fund for the Public Interest

The Fund for the Public Interest is hiring students to work on top environmental and social change issues! We're a national non-profit that builds the people power it takes to win hard-fought campaigns and make real change on some of the most important issues of our day. That's why the Fund is hiring people to work this semester on campaigns for America's leading grassroots action groups to protect the environment and public health across the nation. Click HERE to find out more.


Currently we’re working with PIRGIM to reduce plastic pollution in our lakes & rivers by banning polystyrene (commonly known as Styrofoam). Every day millions of foam cups and takeout containers are thrown out, and too often that trash ends up in our lakes & rivers where it injures and kills birds and fish. Nothing we use for 5 minutes should pollute our planet for hundreds of years. So we’re calling on our state leaders to ban polystyrene foam statewide, and we need your help to do it.


When you take a campaign job with the Fund, you’ll work on real-world issues like this one and others, like global warming, big money in politics, or stopping the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms. You’ll get real-world training, building the people power it takes to win on these issues, and gaining leadership experience, all while getting paid.
We're hiring for a number of different positions including campaign staff, field managers, and directors for our summer campaign season. There are available positions in our 30+ offices all across the country, so apply today to help make change happen.
