Washington Bus Internships are paid*, part-time and flexible, 8 to 10 week seasonal political organizing opportunities for young people. Interns in the greater Seattle area come together weekly (approx. 10 to 15 hrs/wk) to advocate, educate, organize, and engage young folks around the state about important issues.
Past interns have lobbied legislators for increased, equitable access to voting systems, organized door-belling efforts across the state, registered thousands of people to vote, and engaged young (and old) Washingtonians about issues crucial to millenials such as marriage equality, increased funding for public transit, and mandatory criminal background checks on gun purchases. Interns leave the Bus able to champion issues they are passionate about with the knowledge and leadership experience to make real change in their communities.

Q: How flexible is the schedule? Does it fit well around classes and other obligations?
A: The program and group schedules are very flexible and determined by all the interns' availability. Individual and group work / office hours are picked by interns themselves to suit their needs. Additionally, interns will work together to come up with events that constitute additional time in and out of the office.
