NRL Academy Accepting Applications for Summer 2013

Every summer, thousands of young people flock to D.C. for internships, study programs, and summer jobs, many of them headed to National Right to Life. Every year, NRLC offers several internships as well as something a little more unique—the National Right to Life Academy.

Founded in 2007, the NRL Academy is a self-described “pro-life educational boot-camp for student leaders who want to refine their pro-life passion.” College-age students spend five weeks in D.C. learning everything from the history of the pro-life movement to the arguments against abortion, euthanasia, and assisted suicide from respected leaders of the pro-life movement.  In addition to lectures, much of the Academy curriculum focuses on using the arguments in sessions called practicum. During practicum, students give speeches, participate in debates, and lobby instructors for hypothetical pro-life legislation. Though challenging, practicum helps students learn how to use pro-life arguments effectively in real-world situations.

Graduates of the Academy have gone on to lead their college pro-life groups, work for various state affiliates, counsel in pregnancy resource centers, and lend their time and talents in many other ways.

This summer’s Academy begins June 27th, but applications are due by March 15th. North Carolina students should know that they can apply for the NC Scholarship for Life, which covers the cost of the Academy tuition. Interested students must first be accepted into the Academy before applying for the scholarship.
