 Submit your resume and cover letter to Adam Garber, Field Director for PennEnvironment, using our online application. Positions will be filled on a rolling basis as applications are received. The application deadline is September 21st and the start date will be as soon as possible.  

 

The Campaign
From Hurricane Sandy to the worst drought since the Dust Bowl, extreme weather is becoming more frequent and severe. If we dont act now to cut global warming pollution, the consequences for future generations will be devastating.

 

And we know what we need to do: dramatically reduce the carbon emissions created when we burn fossil fuels, become a lot more efficient – so that we use less energy, and ensure that all of the energy we do use comes from clean renewable sources like the sun and the wind. 

 

We’re faced with the best chance weve had in years to cut global warming pollution. The Environmental Protection Agency has proposed standards that would cut carbon pollution from power plants – the single largest source of global warming pollution in the country.  This is an unprecedented step forward, but it’s facing enormous opposition from the fossil fuel industry and their allies in Congress. 

Pennsylvania is at the center of this fight.  Were the third largest emitter of carbon pollution in the nation and Senator Bob Casey will likely provide a deciding vote on whether these new standards move forward. With the coal lobby fighting back, PennEnvironment is expanding our efforts to mobilize and engage tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians for climate action and build a stronger movement to tackle climate change over the next few years. If we succeed, this will be a historic step in the fight against global warming.

 

The Job Description

PennEnvironments Climate Defender Organizers are responsible for recruiting, developing and mobilizing hundreds of volunteers in critical communities around climate change.  Working with volunteers you will organize rallies with hundreds of citizens to rapid response media to coordinating phonebanks to generate thousands of calls and collecting thousands of personal letters on climate change and more. Along the way, you will help collect thousands of petitions, talk to hundreds of volunteers, present to dozens of community groups and build political power to ensure Senator Casey stands strong on climate change.

 

By the end of the campaign, organizers will have built a volunteer team that can continue the fight for Pennsylvanias environment for years to come.

 

Dates

Organizers will start in early autumn and work through the end of December. Organizers will have an opportunity to interview for long-term positions at PennEnvironment and our network of organizations

 

Locations

Pittsburgh, Philadelphia

 

Training

There will be a week-long training near the beginning of the campaign. We will also hold periodic trainings on advanced skills for organizers working on this campaign.

 

Salary

Entry-level organizers will be paid based on an annual salary rate of 24,500. Salary for experienced staff is commensurate with relevant experience, we value experience with political campaigns, environmental organizations, and managing volunteers or paid staff. All staff will receive paid sick days. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.

 

Qualifications

Were seeking applicants who are ready to commit their time, talent and passion to advocating, organizing and recruiting new leaders to protect the environment. We look for smarts, academic excellence and an eagerness to learn. We value leadership experience of all kinds, especially organizing, grassroots outreach and building campus groups. College graduates, graduating seniors, and rising seniors are invited to apply.

 

We are also hiring individuals with 2-4 years of experience to become a Lead Organizer, working hand in hand with another organizer in your area to build teams of volunteers.

 

Our Climate Organizers will have the opportunity to apply for a career position with PennEnvironment and Environment America - the federation of state groups of which were a part - at the end of the campaign.
