About Thirst Project:
Thirst Project is the world’s leading student water activism organization, working to see the END of the global water crisis. The water crisis is a lot like 7th grade Algebra… it SUCKS, but we know how to solve the problem.
663 million people today do not have access to clean drinking water, so we decided to do something about it. Thirst Project exists to educate students about the water crisis and mobilize them to fundraise for global water projects. Since 2008, we’ve funded over 2,200 clean water projects that have provided safe, clean water for life to more than 330,000 people in 13 countries. We plan to double that in the next two years. Bold? Yes. Attainable? Not without you.
We’re looking for a passionate and hella energetic person who loves to be in front of large audiences to travel the country and educate students across the nation about the global water crisis. Apply as a team or by yourself (you’ll get paired up with another Road Warrior) to go on an epic road trip (killer roadie playlist included) inspiring and motivating students to raise funds to build clean water projects globally. So… you’re kind of a big deal.
The program is 15 weeks long and starts with a three week training program in sunny Los Angeles, CA (make sure to bring your shades and floaties). We’ll give you all the tools & swag to become a master at giving a high energy, highly motivational 40 minute presentation to audiences of all sizes in big cities like NYC to small rural towns in Kansas (can’t forget about Kansas). This speech will be one of the many tools in your arsenal to end the global water crisis. You will then help the students you just inspired to plan fundraisers, campaigns and Thirst Project clubs to build wells.
Our School Tour is the most important piece of Thirst Project and the main way we reach students with our mission. We only grow as you GO with the message of the water crisis. If you are ready to be the foundation of this movement then please apply!
