Sign up to find out more about the Student PIRGs remote and in-person internships.
The Student PIRGs are an organization that trains students to run strategic campaigns to protect the environment, make college more affordable, and promote civic engagement. We have remote and in person internships and volunteer opportunities where students can learn valuable organizing and activist skills to make a difference on issues that they care about on their campuses. Learn more about our internships here.
Colleges and Universities offer great classes to learn about all of these problems, and the impacts they have on our country and communities. However, it’s often hard to know how you can put that knowledge into action. That’s where we come in. TEXPIRG Campus Action is based on a model that has been helping students make positive change for almost 50 years.
Across the country, our campus clubs have come together in big ways:
· We helped register hundreds of thousands of students to vote and increased early voting in the 2020 election.
· Throughout the US we’ve gotten hundreds of professors to pledge to keep affordability in mind when they assign their course materials. And we’ve saved students over $40,000,000 by working with dozens of campuses in 10 states to create open source textbook programs.
· And, more than 12 campuses across the country have already pledged to eliminate unnecessary single use plastics.
As an intern you will spend 10-15 hours a week attending trainings, recruiting volunteers, and working on projects and campaigns that will make your community better. You’ll attend weekly trainings and run campaign events.
