You know the drill. The Sharks have the last word.
Students solve real world problems in teams and compete for prizes and the #FEARLESSINCLUSION award. Bring a team or pair up on the spot. Major employers/business orgs* will judge your idea or product and deliver the verdict.

Students' teams will choose a real world problem to solve. Teams will move to a separate space to plan, devise, and strategize about their solution. They will return to the Shark Tank to pitch their ideas/products in 5 minute presentations to our employer judges.

Employers will then confer and pick a winner. This event is for ALL students.

Pizza and drinks for all!

Job Opportunities for Graduating Seniors

PIRG Campus Action works to organize, amplify, and empower students as we tackle the issues that shape our future, and we are hiring for full-time positions as Campus Organizers. 

We need to save the planet, defend the public interest, and protect consumers. To achieve that, we need to imagine what society should look like in the future, and we need to overcome opposition by special interests in the present to get there. The future belongs to young people. It's up to them to dream it up, and their idealism, energy, and vision will build the people power to make it a reality. Click here to apply today.

We know college students have the power to make a difference. From the Freedom Riders of the ‘60s to the voter registration drives of today ... from the anti-apartheid movement of the ‘80s to the drive for fossil fuel divestment now -- students are always pushing our communities, our country and our world forward.

With PIRG Campus Action, you’ll work with students who, like you, believe it’s our right, and responsibility to shape the future we all want. You’ll work with students to decide the strategies and tactics they’ll use to run campaigns that promote clean energy, public health, a stronger democracy and more.


We’re hiring for positions in California, Massachusetts, Oregon, New Jersey, North Carolina and a few other states.
