8 to 10 week seasonal internships: advocate, educate, organize, and engage.

The deadline for the 2014 Fall Internship is Wednesday, September 3rd! APPLY NOW!

 

Washington Bus Internships are 8 to 10 week seasonal political organizing opportunities for young people. Interns in the greater Seattle area come together weekly (approx. 10 to 15 hours a week) to advocate, educate, organize, and engage young folks around the state about important issues.

If you are interested in a full time and paid summer opportunity at the Bus Education Fund you should check out the Bus Fellowship.

Past interns have lobbied legislators for more equitable voting systems, organized large-scale volunteer events, registered hundreds of people to vote, and engaged with thousands of Washingtonians about issues like marriage equality and increasing access to the political system for young people. 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.
