The Bus Project is looking for juniors and seniors to help out with the Democracy Cup competition. The Democracy Cup will engage more than 10,000 high school students and 15 teams of young professionals across the state, and the Bus Project wants Pacific students to be involved.
Through hands-on classroom civics workshops organized around the state, the Bus Project Foundation will meet students where they are, engaging a new generation of Oregonians as active civic participants in their communities. Together, we’ll build the kind of Oregon we all want. That is where magnetic, engaging, Pacific students come in: to lead the workshops and mentor high school students in their work to help register their communities to vote.
The Democracy Cup kicks off with a one day training held in Salem on March 10th. Mentors will have the chance to meet other rising leaders around the state, sharpen their public speaking skills, and learn mentorship 101. To honor their valuable service, Democracy Mentors will receive an honorarium of $150.
