About Us

The Washington Bus engages tomorrow's leaders on their own terms, and empowers them through education, civic and cultural engagement, and hands-on democracy.

People

We believe in people. The Bus engages tomorrow’s leaders on their own terms, and empowers them through education, civic and cultural engagement, and hands-on democracy, and works to put the young people most often excluded from the political process at its center. We focus our resources on supporting leadership of young people from underrepresented communities: communities of color, young women, LGBTQ youth, working class youth, and first-generation students. Whether as first-time volunteers, new voters, effective legislators, or anywhere in between, the Bus invests in providing opportunities to develop the skills and opportunities of young people.

Participation

We believe in participation. The Bus works to ensure that all young Washingtonians actively engage in the civic life of our state. That means that all eligible Washingtonians should be registered to vote, informed on the issues, and turn in their ballots. Further, the Bus believes that young people statewide should have year-round opportunities to learn about, and be effective actors within, the public decision-making process that affects them.

Policy

We believe in policy. The Bus sees legislation and policy work as both an opportunity for young people to learn the inner workings of government and a necessary step in moving Washington forward.
