Heritage’s Young Leaders Program (YLP) is doing more then just providing young conservatives meaningful work experience, rich educational programming, and solid training in foundational conservative principles. YLP also provides an exceptional community for young conservative leaders who are passionate about preserving the America they love.
For some interns, the community they have at Heritage turns into a lifelong commitment with one another.
Recently, two Young Leaders Program (YLP) alumni announced their engagement. Hillary Rosenjack and Caleb Zimmick met when they were both Heritage interns and have been dating ever since.
Hillary describes Heritage’s role in their story:
Caleb and I met in the summer of 2014 – Caleb was in the Roe Institute and I was in the President’s Office. We met playing flag football with other interns on the National Mall and then got to know each other at YLP events, on runs by the Capitol, and exploring on the weekends.
Three years later – this past Friday – Caleb proposed! We are so grateful for the Young Leaders Program and still keep in touch with our close friends from that summer! Wish you all the best – I hope this year’s class can make the most of this unforgettable summer!
We are excited for Hillary and Caleb as they embark in this next chapter of their lives.
Thank you for supporting Heritage in our mission to build an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish – both today and for future generations.
Through programs like YLP, you are investing directly in the young people of the conservative movement who will carry the fight forward in the many battles yet to come.
Why do you think it is important for young people to develop strong community with other conservatives?
