Want an in-depth look at what it’s like behind-the-scenes of the largest and oldest pro-life organization in Canada? The summer internship program run by Campaign Life Coalition and The Interim newspaper is designed to challenge and reward a select number of young people with the unique opportunity to work full-time in the pro-life and pro-family movement over the summer months. This internship is intended to form future leaders by equipping interns with the knowledge, skills, and motivation necessary to defend life from conception to natural death. Our interns have gone on to have many exciting and fulfilling careers, such as in religious ministry, education, politics, media, business, health care, etc. Many have continued to work for the pro-life movement, either as an employee of Campaign Life Coalition, or with another organization.
All interns are expected to work full-time, unless otherwise discussed. Interns rotate through various assignments and supervisors every 1-3 weeks, so that they can appreciate the breadth of the work that we do - from administrative and archiving tasks, to writing and researching for The Interim, to assisting our political team, to helping organize Life Chain, to engaging peers through CLC Youth, etc.
In addition, each intern participates in weekly training sessions to learn more about pro-life apologetics and the many facets of the pro-life movement. To put this knowledge into practice, interns engage in weekly activism, under the leadership of experienced activists. Interns attend various events, conferences, and webinars on behalf of Campaign Life Coalition, and meet various pro-life leaders, such as the Sisters of Life, Silent No More Awareness Campaign's Angelina Steenstra, Euthanasia Prevention Coalition's Alex Schadenberg, etc.
If you're not sure which arm of the pro-life movement you're most drawn to (educational, political, pastoral, spiritual), or you want a taste of it all, this internship is for you.
