Change Corps Organizer


We want change. We want a more equal and democratic America. We want a country that respects and defends women’s health. We want a greener country that doesn’t let ideology blind us to science.

Many Americans share our views on today's problems. Yet too often, it feels like our country, state or city is going in the wrong direction. So what can you do? How do you make change? How do you learn and master the practice of making change?

We started Change Corps to answer these very questions.

Change Corps is a training academy for activists. If you’re serious about becoming an organizer, we offer a year-long, three-step program that will give you the skills, the hands-on experience, and the opportunity to launch your career in social change.

Step one: You take part in an intensive classroom and field training where you will learn and practice the organizing skills you’ll need for the rest of your career.

Step two: You work directly with groups like Planned Parenthood, Everytown for Gun Safety or Mi Familia Vota on their campaigns to defend women’s health, reduce gun violence or bring more people into our democracy.

Step three: After you graduate from the program, we connect you with activist groups who are looking to hire organizers with your experience and skill set.

Pay and Benefits

The target annual compensation for this position is $26,500. Change Corps offers a competitive benefits package. We also offer an excellent training program and opportunities for advancement.
