The Stayin’ Alive Pro-Life Internship is an intensive six day event which offers in-depth formation in pro-life ethics, philosophy and apologetics, as well as important practical skills such as leadership training, event/project management and media training.
Our interns begin each day with breakfast together, followed by a morning of lectures. Each lecture session includes a time of small group discussion where interns gather together to discuss what has just been presented, or to work on practical exercises related to the topic.
After lunch each day our interns explore various possible projects they could be involved with, as well as training in practical issues related to pro-life project management.
After the daily free time and then a shared dinner, participants gather together for the evening session, which sees them watching a movie followed by a discussion about the important pro-life themes and ethical issues that it depicts.
If you’re looking for a more in-depth pro-life formation event that also offers training in important practical skills such as leadership, media and project management, as well as the opportunity to discuss pro-life issues in greater detail, and to meet and build friendships with other young pro-lifers from all over New Zealand, then the Stayin’ Alive Internship could be for you.
Who can attend the Stayin’ Alive Pro-Life Internship?
Anyone aged 18 to 30 years (we will also consider applications from anyone over 30 who is young at heart and a suitable candidate) whose application to attend has been received and approved can attend. Places on the internship programme are very limited, so we work hard to ensure that those limited spaces are offered to the most suitable candidates. In order to assist us in this process we require all applicants to provide the name and details of someone who can act as a verbal referee for their application.
The other requirement for attending the Stayin’ Alive Internship is that participants need to be able to attend ALL of the internship programme, not just some of it, so priority will be given to applicants who can be present for the entire duration of the Stayin’ Alive Pro-Life Internship.

We encourage successful internship applicants to seek sponsorship from local groups in their area, who would be supportive of them attending the Stayin’ Alive Pro-Life Internship, if they are in need of support to offset the cost of attending the Stayin’ Alive Pro-Life Internship.
How do I get to and from the Stayin’ Alive Pro-Life Internship?
Interns must arrange their own travel to and from the Stayin’ Alive Pro-Life Internship. Airport pick-ups and drop-offs will be provided by the Stayin’ Alive team if this is required.
Air New Zealand flies directly into Paraparumu from some parts of New Zealand, or else both Air New Zealand and Jetstar offer regular flights to and from Wellington (obviously the earlier you book your flights the cheaper they are likely to be). There are also overland transport options such as bus services, the train, or ferry which can be utilized too.
