Frequently Asked Questions

about the National Leaders Collective


The National Leaders Collective has been an incredible opportunity full of growth for me personally and professionally. My time as a fellow the past two years had prepared me for my calling to go into the world and be a voice for the voiceless.
Natalee Wilson, 2022-2023 Student Spokesperson

I am grateful for my experience with Students for Life and the lessons learned that have prepared me for this next step in life as Executive Director of a pregnancy center. Students for Life helped me to recognize the desire in my heart to help pregnant mothers and their children in a very direct way…I hope to take part in saving the lives of many children and showing mothers that they have the strength and ability to choose life. 
Julie Kilmer, 2022-2023 Christian Leadership Fellow

What I have learned about leadership and the pro-life movement has helped my grow tremendously as a leader. From what I have learned and the connections I have made from other leaders, applying for this fellowship is one of the best choices I ever made.  
Penelope Rose, 2023-2023 William Wilberforce Fellow

My involvement in the National Leaders Collective has completely changed my life. Without it, I don't know that I'd even be involved in the pro-life movement to this extent; I'm now looking at a career in the pro-life movement.  
Ashley Miles, 2022-2023 Hildegard Art Fellow

"I never thought of myself as much of a leader prior to this year, but my fellowship taught me that there is not one 'type' of leader! Each one of us can play a part in creating a culture of life." 
Kathryn Pluta, 2021-2022 Christian Leadership Fellowship 

"My fellowship allowed me to get more involved with Students for Life, the pro-life movement in general, and getting more involved with the campus administration. I loved all the connections I’ve made and so thankful!" 
Annick Tankus, 2021-2022 Standing With You Fellow 

"Going into the Christian Leadership Fellowship, I had no idea what I was doing or where I fit in. When I arrived at Campbell University as a freshman this year, I expected my pro-life work would be accepted because it was a “Christian College.” However, I instead spent the year facing death threats, hatred, protests, and other crazy backlash. My fellowship was the one place I could stay motivated and feel supported. By the end of the year, I changed 50 pro-choice minds, passed a pro-life resolution, and have been elected president of my college SFLA. My fellowship is truly the reason I kept going, I’m so grateful for my community with them and the impact they had on me.
Lydia Taylor, 2021-2022 Christian Leadership Fellowship
