  • Internship: End the Nicotine Trap Campaign with Maryland PIRG

    Posted: September 22, 2020

    (View as individual posting)

    Maryland PIRG is looking for motivated interns to work on our End the Nicotine Trap Campaign. If you are looking to:

    • Learn about public health policy
    • Get hands on experience in grassroots organizing
    • Make a difference in young people’s lives
    • Be part of legislative change

    Then this is the internship for you!

    Why join Maryland PIRG?
    Simply put, Big Tobacco is winning again. Since the emergence of the e-cigarette industry, these
    companies have focused on marketing their products to kids, using attractive flavors like mint,
    mango, and bubble gum. This means that young people are using tobacco products in numbers
    we haven’t seen in decades – 1 in 4 high schoolers currently vape – and none of the products
    they’re using have been approved by the FDA. There is a lot we don’t know about e-cigarettes,
    but we know they are definitely not safe for kids. That’s why we are working to pass a bill that
    will halt the sale of all flavored tobacco products in Maryland. It’s time to regulate these harmful
    products and make sure that a new generation of young people don’t get hooked on tobacco.

    Professional and Skills Development:
    You’ll have formal and informal trainings and experience with a variety of skills such as:

    • Grassroots Action: Petitioning, phonebanking, and recruiting
    • Political Organizing: Building coalitions with community leaders and prominent
      organizations
    • Research: Strategic use of facts and data
    • Working with the Media: Planning press conferences, submitting opinion pieces,
      publicizing events
    • Running an Organization: Coordinating spokespeople, working with partner
      organizations, tracking campaign products

    Requirements and Details:
    Flexible hours, approximately 10 hours per week. This is a remote, unpaid position, but course
    credit may be available.
    Interns should be reliable, organized, and out-going, with the ability to work independently and
    in groups. Looking especially for candidates with leadership experience and great
    communication skills. All majors welcome.

    To apply, send your resume and a 1-page cover letter to Daniella Paradise at dparadise@pirg.org
    by October 5th.
