ANNOUNCEMENT (BURTL) – The National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) predicts that about 1.79 Million students will graduate from college in 2013. Competition and a 53% unemployment or under-employment rate among recent graduates will make finding a job tough for the Boston University Senior class.
If you find yourself in such a situation and do not know where to go or what to do next, consider working for the prolife movement! Even if you just need something to do over the summer while you look for something more permanent, apply to spend a summer in Washington DC working for a Non-governmental organization or Think-Tank.
Just spending a few months working full-time for the movement will impact the rest of your life. You will get a hands-on, first-person outlook on the inner-workings of the movement. You will be around our nations’ leaders; you will have life-changing encounters with incredible people such as Lila Rose, Kristan Hawkins, Stephen Mosher, Carol Tobias, and so forth.
“The summer after my Junior year I wanted to do something other than take classes, and so I applied to work at the Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute in Washington DC,” said Joseph Austin, alumni of Boston University Right to Life. “It was one of the best decisions I have ever made and not only did I have an unforgettable experience working on the Hill, but it helped me to figure out my vocation in life,” he said.
“Every day I found myself working on a wide variety of tasks in a variety of places, whether it was writing articles on meetings at the US Institute of Peace or in the Capitol, to planning grassroots movements in London, to scheduling meetings with Senate and House staffers, every day was a new day. I met many leaders in the national and international pro-life movement, and got connected.”
Boston University Right to Life has provided a new page on its website for those interested in continuing prolife ministry during the summer or after college. It can be found here.
