About Vermont Conservation Voters

Founded in 1982, Vermont Conservation Voters (VCV) is a non-partisan, non-profit, statewide, environmental organization working to elect environmentally-friendly candidates to public office. We endorse candidates for public office who have a track record of supporting our environmental values. Via political action committees, we help elect endorsed candidates using a range of strategies including financial support, mail, canvassing, and coordinating phone banks. We advocate for strong environmental laws and hold elected officials accountable for the decisions they make affecting our air, water, wildlife, land, communities, and health. 


VCV is seeking a passionate and dedicated organizing fellow to support our elections work, volunteer management, and membership outreach. This role provides a unique opportunity to connect with Vermont voters about the important issues facing our state and help elect pro-environment champions that will advocate for better protections for our environment and the health of our communities. This position will be focused on both elections and issue based organizing throughout the year  


Job responsibilities include:


This is a paid, full time position with the possibility of being extended for the right candidate if resources allow. All offers for employment are conditioned on the candidate complying with VCV’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy. Position will remain open until filled. To apply, email a letter of interest, resume, and three references to Shelden Goodwin at with the subject line “VCV Organizing Fellowship.” 

We recognize that formal education is not the only pathway to gaining relevant experience, and so we invite any combination of academic, professional, and life experience. VCV is an Equal Opportunity Employer and strongly encourages applications from candidates whose identities have been historically underrepresented in the environmental movement, including people who identify as Black, Indigenous, Hispanic or Latino, Asian or Pacific Islander, or people of color; people from marginalized economic backgrounds; and people living with disabilities.
