Having worked with dozens of local, provincial, and national pro-life organizations across the country, I’ve heard time and again that youth are the life blood of Canada’s pro-life movement. Yet many of these same groups have expressed a dire shortage of the exact young men and women that they know would drive back the current bleakness of our nation’s adamant acceptance of abortion.
Since launching our Summer Internships in 2010, CCBR has worked with hundreds of men and women from coast to coast, and we’ve found that to inspire lasting commitment to the pro-life cause, there are four necessary ingredients:
- World class training
- Extensive hands-on experience
- Ample opportunity for leadership
- Strong bonds of an incredible community
That’s why this summer, CCBR will again draw together dozens of young men and women from communities just like yours to our program that is sure to change their life and be the next step towards an abortion-free Canada.
Whether you come from a city as large as Calgary or as small as Edson, program participants will receive unparalleled training from CCBR’s team of experts on topics ranging from pro-life conversation skills to public speaking, from volunteer recruitment to the history of abortion in Canada, and everything in between. Participants will also learn from other national leaders such as Natalie Sonnen from Life Canada, Mike Schouten from We Need a Law and ARPA Canada, and many others who are driving Canada’s pro-life movement forward.
Once equipped with the tools that you need, you will spend hundreds of hours gaining hands on experience changing minds and saving lives from abortion through our various outreach projects. Not only that, but with the guidance of CCBR’s staff, you will transition into leadership positions, gaining invaluable experience developing and implementing strategies with you team members.
Through all this training and experience, program participants will stand shoulder to shoulder with other likeminded men and women who are passionate about serving their pre-born neighbors, and those faced with challenging pregnancies. The friendships that are kindled during this program will remain for years to come, as you encourage and empower each other to maintain your pro-life involvement and grow in your conviction.
The winds of change are stirring in Canada’s pro-life movement, and if we are to push back Canada’s bleak abortion acceptance, we will need more confident and capable men and women just like you who will lead communities like yours to this end.
Please consider applying for this life changing program, and encourage the other young men and women in your community to apply for one of our programs too!
