PennEnvironment, Climate Defender Organizer, Call for Applications

Application Deadline: Rolling

PennEnvironment's Climate Defender Organizers are responsible for recruiting, developing and mobilizing powerful teams of concerned citizens to become climate volunteers in critical communities across the state.

As a Climate Defender Organizer, you will work with our existing network of hundreds of team members and activists and expand volunteer teams in key political areas to ensure support from local decision-makers for climate action. Whether it's educational events with leaders like U.S. Senator Bob Casey or rallies with elected officials like Philadelphia Councilman Derek Greene, you and your volunteers will organize rallies and forums to push decision-makers to lead on climate change.

You'll coordinate regular meetings between local decision-makers and constituents, coordinate rapid response media to highlight climate impacts and hold public officials accountable and help collect thousands of petitions and personal letters on climate change.

By the end of the campaign, you will have built volunteer teams in key areas that can continue the fight for Pennsylvania's environment for years to come.

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.

Qualifications: We're 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, organizing experience and an eagerness to learn. We value leadership experience of all kinds, especially organizing, grassroots outreach and building campus groups. Candidates should have 1-3 years of organizing experience.

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