We are running the Summer Academy again this year. It is a wonderful, free opportunity for students. Thomas, who was a student in ’12, is an intern with us this summer. Contact Janet at jcallahan@masscitizensforlife.
2014 Massachusetts Citizens for Life Summer Academy, 2014
Rising High School Students – Methuen
The goal of the sessions is to form and engage high school students as workers in the pro-life movement. More specifically and immediately, we intend these students to become Ambassadors of MCFL in their respective schools, churches, or homeschooling communities during the 2014-2015 school year, as both leaven and liaison in their respective pro-life clubs.
- So that we may provide a thorough formation, our preference is for students who can and will commit to attending all, or at least most, of the sessions.
- An award certificate will be conferred during the last session, which will also serve as a “commissioning ceremony” for these MCFL Ambassadors.
- In order to present a thorough overview of the main life issues, the pro-life movement, and the various ways that these students can and should get involved, we will hold six weekly sessions. With the exception of the last, sessions will normally consist of an expert presentation of content, and interactive workshop, with 30 minutes allotted at the beginning for informal fraternizing over pizza and soft drinks.
Dates: St. Monica School, Methuen, Wednesdays, July 9 – Aug 13
Time: 6:00 p.m. To 8:00 p.m. (6:00 – 8:30 p.m. for last session)
Tuition: Free for pro-life high school students
