What Past Torchbearer Interns are Saying:
“My time at NFA as a Torchbearer Intern was both an uplifting and a clarifying experience for me. Uplifting because I had the opportunity to work on important issues related to family, life, and faith while interacting with the amazing NFA team. It was an honor to work with such a talented group of people seeking to honor the Lord Jesus Christ by passionately demonstrating truth. Clarifying because it solidified my desire to pursue a legal education in order to continue fighting for the rule of law and Christian values in our state. I am looking forward to carrying the torch forward into the legal sphere.”

“My internship at NFA was uniquely tailored so that I worked in areas that aligned with my strengths and passions.
From helping equip the next generation of leaders at the City on a Hill camp to researching fetal development stages for public policy, God has used me to make a difference this summer. I would highly recommend NFA’s Torchbearer Internship Program to any conservative young person in the state wishing to make a positive impact on today’s increasingly secular world.”
Marilyn graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney in 2018 with a joint major in Political Science and Multimedia Communications. She joined the Nebraska Family Alliance staff in June of 2019 as the team’s Communications Specialist.
“NFA’s Torchbearer Internship provided me with the opportunity to be a part of the political process in Nebraska by conducting policy research, interacting with State leaders, and strategizing how NFA could best influence policy for good. They fully integrated my work with that of the entire organization- I did not spend time filing paper, but instead was involved with meaningful projects.
The Torchbearer Internship was a worthwhile step in my professional and educational journey, not only surpassing the requirements I had for receiving school credit, but equipping me with valuable workplace experience and skills. I am grateful for the blessing of working with this team to influence policy and people here in Nebraska.”
Since 2018, Benjamin has worked at UNL Ratio Christi as the Chapter Director.
“Being a torchbearer intern was an eye-opener for me. I realize how much policy affects our everyday lives whether we see it or not. As a young adult, it’s easy to think that policies do not affect us because we are not feeling the direct impact of those policies in our day-to-day lives. But when I became an intern, I realized that there were people making decisions that were affecting the way of life of Nebraskans everyday. I realized that these policies, if written well, and done according to God’s Word, have the power to bring health to families, restoration to broken places, and bring peace to the city I live in. I highly recommend anyone interested in law or policy to take the time to go through this internship. It will open your eyes too.”
