CONNPIRG has volunteer and internship opportunities tackling issues important to young people- including banning single-use plastics, making textbooks more affordable, and alleviating hunger and homelessness.
Our priority this semester is to ban polystyrene, what most people call Styrofoam. Each year, Americans throw away millions of foam cups and take-out containers. Too often, this pollution ends up in our oceans and rivers, where it can harm or even kill birds, fish, and other wildlife.
Something we use for a few minutes shouldn’t be allowed to pollute our environment for hundreds of years. That’s why we’re working to pass a statewide ban on polystyrene.
Whether you have 10 hours a week or 10 hours the entire semester, there are tons of ways to get involved. Fill out this online interest form to join our team and learn more about internship & volunteer opportunities!
