WHO WE ARE

We’re Oregon’s next-generation, doing democracy right.

For over sixteen years, Next Up – formerly The Bus Project – has amplified the voice and leadership of diverse young people to achieve a more just and equitable state. We do this by achieving systems change, developing multicultural, bold leaders, and mobilizing young voters. With our multi-pronged approach to engaging youth in civics, we can rebalance our democracy to uplift the voices of historically disenfranchised Oregonians. We are based out of Portland, Oregon.

We’re Next Up and we hope you join us. Click below to learn more.
