|Position:||Intern - Political Leadership|
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.
