    Santorum Group with CanvasIf you are a conservative campus activist and want to work in the Conservative Movement, one of the best ways to launch your career is through a Young America's Foundation's internship. A number of Foundation interns have gone on to full-time employment either at the Foundation or elsewhere in the Movement. 

    As a Sarah T. Hermann Intern Scholar, you will receive a number of unique benefits not offered elsewhere, whether you intern at the Foundation's headquarters outside of Washington, D.C. or at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara, CA. Interns are provided with a $1,000 monthly stipend, but you must find your own housing and have access to a car.

    If successful, you will develop a number of close contacts through Foundation who will help you for years to come.  

    However, don't take our word for it, check out what past interns have said about interning for the Foundation:

    Quote-Left  Interning with Young America's Foundation was the experience of a lifetime.  My fellow interns and I worked hard to organize student conferences with over 200 attendees. At these conferences I had the opportunity to introduce conservative leaders such as Governor Mike Pence, Speaker Newt Gingrich, and Bay Buchanan live on C-SPAN. After each event the interns were able to stay after and get to know leaders such as Senator Rick Santorum, Congressman Allen West, and Star Parker. I wrote a weekly blog for The New Guard. One of my blogs, "Left Blames 2nd Amendmentfor CO Shooting, but Aurora Already Had Gun Ban," was reposted by CNS News and the Drudge Report.  My decision to intern with Young America's Foundation changed my life and prepared me for my future.

    Quote-LeftEver since I interned at Young America's Foundation the summer of 2011, my level of conservative activism has been infinitely changed for the better. Not only did YAF give me the opportunity to publish my work on the national scale, but they furthermore fulfilled one of my life-long goals: to appear on Fox News. No day working at YAF is the same. From drafting supporter letters to canvassing on Capitol Hill to recruit students to our events, YAF ensures that their interns receive the most exposure to the world of non-profit activism while also jumpstarting a career in the Conservative Movement. Any interested college student should capitalize on an internship at YAF, because your internship does not end once your session is over. YAF ensures their interns not only succeed throughout the rest of their undergrad career, but even at the post-graduate level. Despite my alumni status with Young America's Foundation, I cannot attest to the level of personal and professional growth I have undergone as a young adult. YAF has given me advice in choosing carefully how to advance my career, providing me resources along the way. No matter where I am in my career, I owe my emergence into conservative activism to the staff at Young America's Foundation.

    Quote-LeftWorking at Young America's Foundation was the perfect year off for me before I started law school. At YAF, I was given the opportunity to take initiative and work on a variety of projects, including writing a series of blog posts and preparing introductions for a number of Foundation speakers. Additionally, I got to speak at CPAC and celebrated Reagan's Centennial birth year at his beloved Rancho del Cielo in Santa Barbara among Vice President Dick Cheney and other guests. As a pre-law-school student at the time, I also had the opportunity to work with the Foundation's counsel and director of planned giving on a variety of legal matters. Perhaps most importantly, I worked as part of the Foundation team in hosting conferences and speaking events on the Hill and across the country. These intensive and exciting programs, where I had to work around the clock with team members, speakers, and students, have prepared me well for dealing with unexpected and engrossing projects that may arise in any work place I might find myself in upon graduating from law school. I have also learned and grown tremendously as an individual from working directly with the Foundation's leadership, whose doors are always open.   I highly recommend the YAF internship experience to other students, whether or not they intend to pursue a career in the Conservative movement. The experience that students will gain outside of the classroom and working at this organization and well-run non-profit is sure to be a semester/summer that they will never forget!   

    The application deadline for this summer is April 1. Learn more about internships and download an application here.

    • I have learned svearel important things through your post. I would also like to convey that there may be situation in which you will make application for a loan and don't need a cosigner such as a Federal Student Support Loan. But if you are getting a loan through a standard banker then you need to be ready to have a co-signer ready to assist you. The lenders will certainly base their very own decision on a few elements but the main one will be your credit worthiness. There are some creditors that will additionally look at your job history and come to a decision based on that but in most cases it will depend on your scores.
