I was incredibly blessed by the opportunity to serve as a Vision Forum intern. The business skills and experience gained from working for a Christian company whose mission is the advancement of the kingdom were invaluable. Serving with and learning from men who fear God spurred me on to serve Christ with a renewed zeal. The relationships I gained were encouraging and inspiring. I highly recommend the Vision Forum internship.
—Benjamin Lenz, Class of 2012, General Track

Commendations from Former Interns

My time as a Vision Forum intern has been a tremendous blessing to me. Learning from the godly men at Vision Forum has been life changing. The instruction I have been given, and the example that the men set forth, strengthened my desire to serve the Lord in everything I do. I cannot express enough my appreciation for the time I have been able to spend here. I highly recommend Vision Forum's internship to any young man who has a desire to serve the Lord.

The opportunity to learn from men who understand the business world, and strive to approach it with a biblical worldview, is an experience which has transformed the way I approach my work ethic. I would never trade the experience I had working with a staff which is charitable, gracious, and dedicated to service and discipleship.

General Assembly Pages, Interns, and Host Families Needed


Election season has just wrapped up and General Assembly session is quickly approaching, which means The Family Foundation is in the midst of important preparation. One of the critical elements of our preparation includes finding student interns and pages that can assist our legislative team in our advocacy work in our Richmond office. Both our intern and page programs offer students a valuable opportunity to experience the activities of a General Assembly session firsthand. There will be unique opportunities to observe legislative committee meetings, floor sessions of the House of Delegates and Senate, and much more. Candidates for the intern and page positions must have a pro-life, pro-family perspective on social issues and a biblical worldview of the roles of politics, government and the church.

Additionally, The Family Foundation is searching for host families in the Metro Richmond area who would be willing to house a college intern during the 45-day General Assembly.

The Family Foundation’s 2013 General Assembly team will begin session work Monday, January 7th and conclude Friday, February 22nd. Those desiring more information or those interested in serving should contact Jessica Cochrane by phone at 804-343-0010 or by email at Jessica@familyfoundation.org.

Intern Program (College)
Interns assist staff in actively monitoring legislation, attending General Assembly committee meetings, research and writing, assisting with our annual Lobby Day, and helping with social media and video projects. Candidates for this position should be available at least 2 full days per week, but preferably more. The optimal candidate for this position would be organized and self-motivated, able to work without constant supervision, and have some skill in research and writing. Both credit and non-credit internships are welcome. Parking is provided and housing can be arranged if necessary.

Page Program (High School)
Pages are responsible for the efficient maintenance of information within The Family Foundation’s General Assembly Operations Room and information exchange between The Family Foundation and the members of the General Assembly. Pages assist Family Foundation legislative staff in the accomplishment of their daily tasks, delivery of information to the General Assembly building, and administrative responsibilities in the development department. Pages are encouraged to work at least two (half or full) days per week. The more days a page is in the office, the more he or she will learn and experience.

Host Families (Metro-Richmond Families)
Host families must reside in the Metro Richmond area and will assist in the legislative efforts of The Family Foundation by housing a college intern during General Assembly session. Please contact Jessica Cochrane by phone at 804-343-0010 or by email at Jessica@familyfoundation.org for more details or if you would considering being a host family.
