Thanks for your interest in our internship program. The Bus Project aims to build a leadership development experience for people that are interested in combining hands-on service with powerful connections to both a local and national network of progressive leaders.

The internship consists of hands-on learning from people engaged at all levels of the political process in Oregon (policy makers, activists, elected officials, badass organization leaders, and more)! Along with weekly classroom sessions, fellows will also have the opportunity to go out on the field to both register and educate voters.

Of course, there is only so much information we can give you before it becomes self-righteous. So let's move on to you! That's what we're really here for, right?
