Career Opportunities for Recent Graduates

We’re running campaigns this coming year to make a difference on some of the top issues facing our generation.

We're pushing big companies to go solar as the next big step toward 100% renewable energy. We're fighting to empower regular voters so we can take back our democracy from billionaires and Super PACs. And we're urging big chains like Subway to go antibiotics-free, so we can stop our industrial food system from overusing antibiotics on animals. 

In short, we're organizing campaigns that can make a concrete difference right now and get our country on a path to a better future. 


We're looking for people who have the passion and the drive it takes to fuel the power of student activism, win positive change, and build for even more victories in the future. 

We're hiring organizers to work on college campuses in Maryland, New Jersey, and Massachusetts.
