Volunteer or Intern On Campus

During this time of social distancing, we have remote volunteer opportunities and internships available to help people in need, protect public health and the environment, and keep our community civically engaged.

Regardless of your schedule, you can volunteer with OSPIRG Students and make a difference. Whether you can volunteer once a week or once a term, OSPIRG Students provides a unique opportunity to work on meaningful issues and help your community in a time of need.

MAKE A DIFFERENCE

New Voters Project– Interns and volunteers will work on OSPIRG Students’ priority campaign to help students register and get out and vote (GOTV) in the upcoming election. On Election Day, young people will be the largest and most diverse group of potential voters, with distinct values and ideas. OSPIRG Students are running a non-partisan voter registration effort across our state.

LEARN SKILLS

Communication Skills – Improve your public speaking and writing skills, and learn how to work with the media to get media coverage. Get experience speaking in front of groups and advocating a position one-on-one.

Campaign Skills – Learn the basics of running a campaign – recruiting and training volunteers, generating grassroots support (petitions, letters, calls), building coalitions, organizing large events, campaign strategy, and advocacy skills.

Leadership Skills – Learn how to run meetings, work with teams, plan large events, develop other leaders, mange volunteers, and manage your time.
