The Washington Bus Campus Engagement Program

Interested in helping students on your campus get engaged in politics? First off, you're awesome. Second, the Bus is here to help.

The Washington Bus supports campuses with engaging students in legislative and civic advocacy year round through the development of strategic voter registration and civic engagement programs in regions across Washington State. The Bus provides on-campus trainings, voter registration field support, data management, and long-term infrastructure planning.

In 2012 the Washington Bus was a lead organization in the Youth Vote Coalition, which included the Washington Student Association, WashPIRG, and many others. The coalition registered and engaged close to 15,000 young people in Washington State. While statewide turnout for youth was at 62% for 18-29 year olds, turnout for those registered on campus by the Youth Vote Coalition was 81%.

In other words, big things are afoot on campuses across the state and the Bus wants to help you make it happen on yours! Contact our illustrious Program Director, Katie Stultz at katie[at]washingtonbus[dot]org to learn how you can get engaged!
