Oregon’s Next Generation of Leaders

PolitiCorps is almost here! Our 10 week political organizing and leadership development bootcamp starts on June 15th. We are beyond excited to announce that we already have some amazing fellows that will be participating in the program this summer, but we’re still accepting more! If you or anyone you know is looking for a meaningful way to spend their summer, applications are here!

Through trainings and hands-on experience in the field, the Bus Project will be able to continue to grow and empower the next generation of leaders. This summer’s program consists of 12 fellows and since not all of them are from Portland, they’ll need a place to stay.

As much as our Leadership Development Coordinator, Amy Kessler, would love to host them all, it may be a little tight in her one-bedroom apartment. If you, your friends, or your family would be interested in hosting one of our incredible (and respectful!) fellows, please contact Amy Kessler at 503-233-3018 oramy@busproject.org.

2014 PolitiCorps class, lookin’ snazzy.

What’s all this about PolitiCorps?

Politicorps is Oregon’s premiere youth development summer fellowship that has graduated over 200 fellows to prepare the next generation of Oregonians for careers in political advocacy and civic engagement. Our program is an intensive, paid, ten week political organizing and leadership development bootcamp (whew, what a mouthful). If you’re a college junior, senior or recent graduate (aged 20-24) dedicated to public interest and political process, you are eligible for the Fellowship.
PolitiCorps focuses on training young leaders who are ready to commit themselves full time to working in public service. PolitiCorps alumni are busy changing the world all around the city, state, and country; from APANO to Causa, CIO to City Club, the Oregon Secretary of State’s office all the way to the White House, PolitiCorps Alumni have been there, done that.
Got any other questions? Be sure to check out our FAQ page, or send Amy a friendly email.

What are you waiting for? Go get those applications in!
