Former Sustainability Advocate Intern at Clean Water Action

I liked getting to learn from other employees and practice my communication skills during work. I disliked going door to door because you are alone during this time, which can be frightening especially as a young woman.

I liked it when people were responsive and wanted to talk to me about the environment. It made me realize that although this work is hard, it is important. It was difficult when people were rude to me and angry about knocking on their door, but I tried my best to not take it personally. It is an emotionally taxing job, so just prepare yourself for that. In general I had a positive experience and liked my coworkers, but canvassing is not for everyone.

Former Organizer at Clean Water Action

I grew more passionate about the environment while I was working for CWA and it really helped me over come some of my introvert qualities, however the downside was the job can be stressful at times when people don't want to get involved.
