Hi Professor Rynkiewicz,

I hope your semester is going well so far. We at Impact have been working hard, tackling issues like climate change, voter turnout at the polls and renewable energy.

Today I’m asking for your help in getting the word out about Impact. Would you be willing to post our job description to your classroom’s announcement board and forward it to any interested students?

We’re looking for motivated seniors who are eager to achieve positive change for our environment, our democracy and our future.

Thanks again,

Katie Otterbeck

FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT, OUR DEMOCRACY, OUR FUTURE.

Impact is a non-profit project of leading advocacy organizations, including Environment America and U.S. PIRG, that creates the grassroots action and power it takes to make an impact on issues that matter. We’re hiring a team of organizers for a two-year program.

Organizers currently work in 25 states. We’re working with national campaigns to get our country to 100 percent renewable energy, reduce corporate agriculture’s pollution of our water, and end the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms.

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH IMPACT

What will you do with Impact? First, you’ll come together with other new and experienced staff from across the country to learn how to make your impact in classroom trainings on the issues, our campaigns, our strategies and the tactics you’ll be using throughout the year. Then, you’ll put those skills to use in the field.

Your campaign assignment will depend in part on where you applied to work and where you can make the biggest difference. For example, you might build the coalition that convinces a major restaurant to stop serving meat raised on antibiotics. Or you could organize the news event that convinces the governor in your state that switching to more renewable energy is an opportunity to be a hero with the public.

Even when there’s not a vote coming up, organizing helps build long-term power to secure victories in the future. By first educating people on an issue and then winning them over to our point of view, we lay the groundwork for political change. It’s challenging, fun and incredibly meaningful. We’re taking on big issues and we’re up against big adversaries. We run campaigns with concrete goals, detailed plans, rigorous training, and above all, a laser- like focus on results.

HOW YOU’LL MAKE AN IMPACT

Every day with Impact is different. You could be connecting with new health or consumer groups to build a coalition to stop antibiotic overuse, speaking in a church basement or at a town hall meeting on 100 percent renewable energy, organizing a news event on water pollution from factory farms, or meeting with an editorial board about any of these issues.

During the summer, you’ll run a citizen outreach canvass—and have the power of a paid staff of college students and others ready to help you build support for an issue, recruit new members, and raise funds for the campaign. And you’ll recruit the next wave of Impact organizers and interns so we can continue to work on more campaigns. So if what you want to do after college is to join a team of people who bring their passion to work every day to make an impact on issues that matter, then we’re the group for you.

PAY & BENEFITS

The target annual compensation for this position is $26,000 in the first year. Impact offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
