What Do Former Interns Say?
"I just wanted to thank you for everything you did and taught me this summer. Thank you for the amazing opportunity and experience to serve Christ and His Church through standing up for the most vulnerable." - Maria
"I learned so much about myself, what it means to be pro-life, and how I can contribute to the fight for life. I was challenged to do the best work I could, while building supported by a great staff. Working with passionate, hardworking people in such an encouraging, Catholic environment has been invaluable to me and will surely be beneficial to me throughout my college experience and beyond. I am so thankful to have had this opportunity and could not imagine spending my summer elsewhere." - Lauren
"Thank you for the opportunity to work with you all this summer. From making social media posts to volunteering with the Helpers of God's Precious Infants Ministry to attending the Pro-Life Women's Conference, I've learned so much about the pro-life world and non-profits. I've gained skills that will help me when I graduate next May. Thank you for all of your prayers and I'll see you at the Respect Life Convention in October." - Riley
