Internship Opportunity with Student PIRGs

Dear Professor Sousa and Professor O'Neil,

I'm working with the Student PIRGs to run an internship program at University of Puget Sound where students can make a difference on issues they care about - like protecting our forests, expanding public transportation, or making textbooks affordable. Students can organize events around weatherizing local homes and community buildings or fund raising for local shelters.

Through our intern program, students will learn how to plan and run the campaign, recruit and train a team of volunteers, work with the media, and educate their campus about these issues. We our now accepting applications. Students can apply online at https://www.studentpirgs.org/internships

Will you forward the email below to your classes or any other student leaders on campus who you think would be interested in our internship opportunities?

Thank you for all you do for your students!
