This summer, Environment Massachusetts is running a campaign office in Boston to fight climate change and commit Massachusetts to 100% clean energy!

We have the technology to power our state with clean energy like solar and wind power. Instead, we’re still depending on fossil fuels that pollute our air and warm the planet. That’s why we’re building support for the 100% Clean Act, which would transition our state to 100% clean electricity by 2035.

We need to demonstrate to our legislators that their constituents strongly support this bill. So we are hiring staff to build public support in the Greater Boston area. As paid campaign staff, you will build grassroots power, learn the building blocks of political organizing, and work closely with our senior staff management team.
This is your chance to spend your summer working for a great cause, while gaining valuable campaign leadership experience and making $17-$27 an hour.

Fill out this form and we will give you a call to tell you more about the campaign, and the positions we are hiring for! Learn more at and on the Environment Massachusetts website
