Student PIRG Applications Open

Our country needs more organizers- will you join our team to make a difference post graduation? Apply by our Fall Application Deadline 11/20.

The Student PIRGs work closely with The Public Interest Network, which operates and supports organizations committed to a shared vision of a better world and a strategic approach to social change. Click here for things you should know about our network when you apply.

What will you work on? For example, this fall our organizers set out to increase youth voter turnout this Election cycle and organized youth mobilization campaigns in states across the country. Our efforts recruited more than 2,000 student leaders that helped make over 390,000 GOTV contacts to make sure students were heard on Election Day. You can read more about our effort here.The numbers are still coming in, but we know lots of young people have turned out! Now, we will now continue to provide the resources students need to tackle climate change, protect public health, revitalize our democracy, feed the hungry and more.
