Experience: Entry level

Who We Are

The Environmental Voter Project is a cutting-edge nonprofit that leverages data analytics and behavioral science to get environmentalists to vote. Our goal is not to change the way anybody thinks about climate change or the environment; rather, our goal is to find already persuaded environmentalists who aren’t voting and then turn them into consistent super-voters. With a national network of over 2,200 volunteers, EVP is achieving dramatic results in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, and we have plans for further expansion. In 2018, The New York Times named our Executive Director one of five global climate visionaries because of EVP’s ground-breaking work.

Position Summary

The Campaign Associate will work closely with EVP’s Executive Director, Organizing Director, and Field & Data Director to support each aspect of the Environmental Voter Project’s work. In particular, you will assist with volunteer recruitment, volunteer training, member communications, election research, field campaign management, data management, and office operations, quickly learning about every aspect of cutting-edge voter mobilization work. This position is based in Boston, MA.
