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 millennials such as marriage equality, increased funding for public transit, and mandatory criminal background checks on gun purchases.
