What do Associates do after the program?

Associates have taken a variety of paths after their service with NETWORK. Here’s a sampling of what some former Associates have done:

  • Alison was hired by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd for the first lobbyist position in their newly-formed advocacy office in Washington, DC
  • James went on to work on several election campaigns, and was one of the founders of Catholics United
  • Ashley is now the NETWORK Campaigns and Organizing specialist
  • Claire was hired by the Center for American Progress to be the Outreach Manager for the Faith and Progressive Policy Initiative
  • James went on to teach at a Jesuit high school in Texas, and is now working towards his Master's Degree at  Boston College School of  Theology and Ministry
  • Ellen works at a healthcare research and policy organization in Washington 
  • Katie went on to do campaign work with Battleground Texas and now does data work with her alma mater
  • Many associates decide to go to graduate school for a Masters or PhD after their time at NETWORK -- two of them recently got their law degrees
  • Other associates have gone on to work as community organizers, campus ministers, legislative assistants, in think tanks, with the State Department, and with other organizations including the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Pax Christi, Faith in Public Life, the Catholic Worker, and many more
