The Bus Project is a Portland-based nonprofit focusing on voter registration, youth engagement in government and leadership development.
PolitiCorps is an intensive ten week political organizing bootcamp. It is designed by the young leaders of the Bus Project — a nationally recognized organization that has been getting young people involved in politics since 2002.
The program selects 24 students from across the country for a summer of high impact service, training, and life changing conversations. Hands-on democracy is our specialty. That means that PolitiCorps is a place where you learn… and do.
Fellows spend the first weeks of the program learning the nuts and bolts of effective people-powered politics. During that process, Fellows design their own 8 week mini campaign. Past groups have done massive things: registered thousands of voters, knocked on 15,000 doors to support marriage equality, and developed and experimented with a volunteer recruitment program.
PolitiCorps Summer 2014 will begin on June 16th.
