The Heritage Foundation's summer 2012 interns pose with Heritage President Ed Feulner.

Thanks to the support of Heritage Foundation members, 73 young conservatives were able to spend their summer working with Heritage experts on the day’s most pressing issues. During the three-month internship program, they gained a better understanding of our nation’s first principles and learned important career skills.

Here’s what Marcus Bauer of Boston College had to say about serving as the William M. Young Intern in the Center for Legal and Judicial Studies:

My internship at Heritage is by far the most interesting and formative experience I have had in public policy. The ability to assist and learn from some of the greatest conservative minds in the country has been nothing short of amazing!

And here’s Renee Davis from the University of Dallas, who spent the summer as the H.N. and Frances C. Berger Foundation Intern in the B. Kenneth Simon Center for Principles and Politics:

It is no accident that The Heritage Foundation is widely regarded as THE place to be as a young conservative—Heritage equips its interns with valuable personal, professional, and practical experience. Thank you for making this possible with your support!

Nearly 190 interns come through Heritage’s doors every year in a program that depends on the support of our nearly 700,000 members.

Tell us in the comments: Do you think it’s important that Heritage continue to educate young conservatives through internships and other elements of our Young Leaders Program?

I truly believe that what you do by helping interns better understand all that is good about this country is wonderful. Without these types of mentorship programs, our message will be lost and leadership will deteriorate. Thank you so much! Keep up the great work. Jerry & Candace Brockey
