Public Interest Research Group (U.S.PIRG)


Learn the basics of organizing, and put these skills to work to cast a spotlight on social problems and help run our campaigns.

We’re hiring Fellows to work on big problems: whether it’s stopping the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, checking the influence of billionaires and Super PACs over our elections, giving consumers the right to know if GMOs are in their food, passing new recycling laws, or promoting smart transportation options for a 21st century economy.

The goal of a PIRG Fellowship is to help develop leaders for the public interest movement. Fellows gain hands-on experience in organizing, advocating and leading public interest campaigns. Practical experience is complemented by intensive training and the direction and advice of a senior mentor.

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