Abduction is a five-minute experience that uses the metaphor of an alien abduction to help students better understand what millions of animals endure in labs on university campuses—perhaps even their own. 🐒🐇🐁 Since launching Abduction in 2022, we’ve brought it to more than 50 universities and collected hundreds of petition signatures. 📝 Again, you should expect to work hard, spend the day on your feet, and reach challenging goals in addition to going on long drives in a box truck the size of a U-Haul. Are you up for the task? Read more about Abduction and apply below. 😁

4. SOS Campus Rep

Are you a college student who’d like to get paid $60 for each protest or outreach event you host on campus? 💸 Apply to be a campus rep with Students Opposing Speciesism (SOS) and join young activists across the U.S. and Canada in standing up against human supremacy. 💪 You’d help make your campus an animal rights powerhouse by hosting protests, film screenings, vegan food giveaways, and other 🔥 advocacy events.

SOS will provide all the materials you need for free and pair you with a staff member who will help guide your events. 🤝 College students between the ages of 18 and 25 who are currently enrolled in a two- or four-year college program in the U.S. or Canada are encouraged to apply. (Unfortunately, students in California, Colorado, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, Oregon, Puerto Rico, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, and Washington are ineligible due to local laws.) Check out the SOS campus rep page to submit your application. 😊


Even if you don’t qualify for these jobs, you can still be a strong animal advocate. Simple actions like leaving a leaflet on an egg carton in the store can inspire others to make kinder choices and help prevent animals from suffering.
