Spring Internships with ConnPIRG!
Learn the ins and outs of public interest advocacy while working to stop the overuse of antibiotics on factory farms, protect our democracy, or increase alternative transportation. Apply to be a ConnPIRG intern today!
Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest public health threats of our time. The CDC says that last year, 23,000 Americans died from antibiotic resistant infections. And still 70 percent of antibiotics sold in the U.S. are used on factory farms, often given to animals that aren’t even sick. This accelerates the rise of antibiotic resistant superbugs. That’s why ConnPIRG is working to get major fast food chains like KFC to commit to selling meat raised without routine antibiotics to help protect public health. Right now, we’re looking for passionate, dedicated interns to work on our top priority campaigns this fall including this one.
You’ll work alongside an experienced organizer and learn what it really takes to make lasting change to protect the the public. Through the internship, you’ll learn valuable skills from interpersonal communication to working with the media. And you’ll get the opportunity to work on a variety of tactics from testifying at public hearings to meeting with elected leaders.
