Impact runs action campaigns on issues that matter, like global warming, clean water and big money’s influence over our democracy, and they are hiring!

This isn’t a study program or a travel program; it’s an action program. Our mission is to create the grassroots action, energy and power it takes to make an impact on important issues.

If you’re serious about making an impact on these issues and you’re willing to get out and work in the real world, where issue campaigns like these are won and lost, then consider applying now.
