Intern with (B)us

Washington Bus internships are seasonal paid, part-time and flexible 8 to 10-week social justice and community organizing opportunities for young people.

High school engagement

We partner with dozens of high schools each year to promote civics education, focused on actionable ways young people can create change in their own communities.


Volunteers are what fuel the Bus! We couldn’t do this work without you, the person who wants to make an active difference in Washington’s political world.


Does helping young people change their communities for the better sound like something you want to do for a living? Working at The Washington Bus might be for you!
