4) Teach in Prison

Teach in Prison

My name is Avelina, I am a facilitator for the Teach in Prison Decal. We are a DeCal which sends students in to tutor incarcerated students at San Quentin State Prison so that they can work towards getting their GED and then 7 months off their sentence. We’ve had many excellent students from the Legal Studies department.

Interested in social justice or teaching? Heard of the school-to-prison pipeline or racialized mass incarceration in the US?
If you’ve been wondering how to get involved and make a lasting, positive change – this is the opportunity for you!

Teach in Prison (TIP) is a Fall 2019 DeCal dedicated to helping students at San Quentin State Prison earn their GEDs and further their education. Our students volunteer for a four hour shift each week tutoring incarcerated students in English, Math, Writing, and a variety of other topics

Since 2000, in cooperation with San Quentin’s Warden’s Office, the Robert E. Burton Adult School, and UC Berkeley, Cal students have been helping incarcerated individuals work towards academic goals in a professional and compassionate manner through TIP. We look forward to continuing this partnership and expanding the TIP family. Please follow this link to apply by November 10th.

PIRG Jobs

Are you looking for a full-time job next year where you can fight to protect our environment, our democracy and our future?

Apply to work with the Student PIRGs today before our Early Application Deadline on November 1st. 

The Student PIRGs are hiring organizers to work on some of the most pressing issues our generation is facing. If you want a job where you can make a real impact apply today! Our organizers work full-time to provide students the training, professional support and resources they need to move our country forward while gaining campaign skills and being trained by some of the top organizers in our country.

Students are often at the forefront of movements to build a better future for our country. Whether or not those students make real progress depends on whether they are organized, have the skills to be effective and a strategic plan to get things done. The Student PIRGs have been working for over 40 years to amplify the power of student activism, and help students tackle some of the country’s most pressing problems.

Here are just a few of the victories the Student PIRGs have worked to accomplish this year:

  • We helped more than 30,000 young people register to vote, made over 1 million GOTV contacts, and protected students’ right to vote at the ballot box, which all contributed to an unprecedented increase in youth voter turnout in 2018.
  • Our field team in California channeled the national energy around climate solutions into their SB100 campaign and pushed the largest state in the country to commit to 100% renewable energy.
  • In Connecticut, our students organized locally to ban plastic bags at the University of Connecticut and then advocated for and won a statewide ban on single use plastic bags!

Apply today for our full-time positions running a volunteer and internship program on college campuses that make a real difference on the issues you care about.
