The Environmental Voter Project is seeking applicants for its Campus Coordinator Program for the 2020-2021 academic year. Each Campus Coordinator will work closely with EVP’s Organizing Director to build a campus-specific organizing plan and then oversee all organizing and voter contact for that designated college campus. The position is open to students who are enrolled in college in one of EVP's target states (ME, NH, MA, NY, PA, VA, NC, GA, FL, CO, NM, NV, AZ). All outreach will be virtual until EVP determines it is safe to resume in-person events. Campus Coordinator responsibilities will also include:
- Organizing EVP volunteer events, including text banking, phone banking, and canvassing events.
- Outreach to campus environmental and political groups.
- Coordinating campus-wide campaigns to encourage people to sign “Environmental Voter Pledges.” Environmental Voter Pledges simply ask people to pledge to (1) vote in every election and (2) always prioritize environmental issues. (An example of EVP’s online pledge form can be found here: https://www.environmentalvoter.org/sign-the-pledge). Multiple studies have proven that these simple pledges can dramatically increase turnout rates, even among people who have never voted before.
Time Commitment and Other Details
EVP’s Campus Coordinator positions are unpaid, volunteer roles similar to campaign internships. Coordinators will be expected to work anywhere from 1–5 hours per week, according to a flexible schedule that takes exams and other student responsibilities into account. Campus Coordinators will also have the opportunity to join regular conference calls and trainings with EVP’s Organizing Director and gain valuable campaign skills and experience.
Campus Coordinators are expected to commit for an entire academic year but workload will diminish after the November election.
Remote interviews are being scheduled on a rolling basis. Interested applicants should apply using this link.
