CalPirg: Student PIRGS
The Student PIRGs are hiring organizers to work on some of the most pressing issues our generation is facing. If you want a job where you can make a real impact apply today! Our organizers work full-time to provide students the training, professional support and resources they need to move our country forward while gaining campaign skills and being trained by some of the top organizers in our country.
Students are often at the forefront of movements to build a better future for our country. Whether or not those students make real progress depends on whether they are organized, have the skills to be effective and a strategic plan to get things done. The Student PIRGs have been working for over 40 years to amplify the power of student activism, and help students tackle some of the country’s most pressing problems.
UC Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies: Internship
Over Cal Spring Break, students will gain exposure to different facets of a public service career: legislative paths, community organizations, local, state and federal government, and philanthropy. Participants will learn from presenters about the opportunities available in these fields and will network with presenters and amongst themselves to create a cohort on campus—and beyond—to support their career goals. Additionally, there will be a trip to Sacramento and skill-building modules that focus on practical and tangible takeaways.
Democracy Camp will take place during Spring Break, from Monday, March 23–Thursday, March 26, 2020. Participants are expected to attend ALL program sessions during this time. Please do not apply if you cannot attend the full program. Democracy Camp is held on the Berkeley campus with a trip to the California State Capitol in Sacramento. There is no cost to students—all meals and course materials are included.
All undergraduate students currently enrolled at UC Berkeley, including international students, are encouraged to apply! All majors and all years are welcome!
