Someone once said that America has more problems than we should tolerate and more solutions than we use.
That’s an especially big challenge to college students and recent graduates: After all, we’re the generation that will inherit America’s problems.
We need take on these problems together. That’s why the Student PIRGs recruit and train students to take on these and other pressing social problems outside the classroom.
As a campus intern with the Student PIRGs, you can:
• Make sure our voices our heard on Election Day.
• Fight global warming by convincing the EPA to enforce new clean air standards for power plants.
• Take on the publishing industry to stop textbook ripoffs.
• Learn how to build and lead teams of volunteers, organize events on campus, and work with the media.
