FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSAbout Life Advocacy Student Training
Can I invite faculty, staff, or non-student pro-lifers to LAST?
Registration for LAST is limited to pro-life college students who are currently enrolled at an accredited college or university. The LAST program is specifically tailored for the unique concerns of college students, and our funding requires that attendees be enrolled in an institution of higher education. This is so that we can provide an atmosphere of freedom for participants to discuss experiences and questions that are unique to college students.
We are happy to work with hosting groups to provide the option of an add-on event for a more general audience. We also offer a similar training program for professionals and non-student adults—please contact us for more information about our Life Principles Academy.
Can I invite high school students to LAST?
Again, the training method and content is specifically geared for college students, and our funding is restricted to this audience. In fairness to the college students who register for LAST, we strive to keep the level of learning as consistent as possible among audience members so that attendees can discuss concerns unique to their experience on college campuses.
We are happy to work with you to schedule a separate event for interested high school students and their parents. Please let us know if you would like to host a one- to two-hour add-on session for high school students and their parents.
Can I invite “pro-choice” students or students who are “on the fence” on the life issues?
LAST is intended for students who are already pro-life. There is a time and place for open debate and public education about the issues, but LAST is not the occasion for this. HTC strives to provide pro-life students with a distraction-free environment in which to learn some important principles for life advocacy. If we do our job well during the LAST training, your group will be equipped with important concepts and resources to assist you in hosting a future event on your own for these purposes.
In other words, LAST is all about teaching you how to fish, not simply giving you another fish.
How is registration handled?
There are two possibilities:
- We can provide registration through our Web site and provide organizers with a formatted email invitation to send to their constituents. We will pass along notifications of each registration throughout the time leading up to the event. Hosting groups can also create their own email invitation directing students to www.healingtheculture.com/LAST for registration.
- The other option is for hosting groups to spread the word and keep a list of names/email addresses of everyone who plans to attend. Once 10 students have signed up, organizers simply forward the list to Healing the Culture to confirm their date.
Healing the Culture requires at least 10 confirmed registrations in order to offer this event free of charge. Ten confirmed registrations leaves the hosting organization with absolutely no financial obligation to HTC.
The day before your event, our staff will provide organizers with a summary sheet containing event date/time/location, updated registration list, and the speaker’s travel itinerary and contact information.
What about food?
If the hosting group does not wish to provide food, the invitations and registration page will direct attendees to bring their own lunch or snack for the breaks. If the hosting group decides to provide food, the registration page will ask attendees to indicate any special dietary needs or preferences.
Thanks for your interest! Please contact us if you have any questions about hosting LAST at your institution at email@example.com or (360) 243-3811.
