Hiring Immediately - Full-time & Part-time ($20-21.50/hr)

Summer Canvassers Needed! This is Not a Fundraising Position.

Spend your summer making a difference! We are currently hiring campaign staff to canvass door-to-door on behalf of Planned Parenthood Votes! South Atlantic to rally the vote for candidates who will protect our access to reproductive healthcare, and keep the government from interfering with our right to make decisions about our own bodies.

North Carolina’s sweeping abortion ban and restrictions on reproductive health care are harming real people. Bans on any health care put politics above people and put our futures on the line.

We’re working to ensure that everyone can live, thrive, and raise families in healthy communities. When people can make decisions about their own reproductive health care, they have more control over their economic security, their health and well-being, and can build the future they see for themselves.

Politicians have no business interfering with private health care decisions. We’re fighting to stop this government intrusion and put the power back in the hands of the people.

Canvassers are paid hourly to canvass targeted voters door-to-door in North Carolina. Together, we can get out the vote in North Carolina this November.

This is a great opportunity for students to gain experience in the following areas: Leadership, Communication & Advocacy, Community Outreach & Engagement, Campaign Work, Public Policy, and Organizing work. We offer flexible summer schedules in a mission driven, growth oriented environment.

We are hiring to start in Mid-June. All positions run through November 5th with possibilities for continued work afterwards. Shifts run between 1:00 PM - 8:00 PM with the possibility to work part-time or full-time.

Get paid well! Canvass positions start at $20/hour base pay. Leadership positions earn up to $21.50/hour. In addition, we offer overtime pay, paid training, sick pay, and bonuses.

Locations: Asheville, Charlotte, Raleigh, and Wilmington NC. Strong preference for in-state candidates, short-term travel may be required.

COVID-19 has altered the political landscape, but one thing remains the same - we will need to have in-person conversations with people to get out the vote. Thankfully, we can do this in a way that is low risk. We will provide PPE and substantial health and safety training, we will work outside, and we will all follow the canvassing protocols that will allow us to do this critical work while keeping ourselves and everyone else in our communities safe.
