About this event

Are you looking for an opportunity to learn how to reach and transform the culture on the issue of abortion?

Are you looking for a chance to gain hands-on experience in how to do effective pro-life activism in your own community?

Do you want to be trained on how to effectively and compassionately share the pro-life position with your fellow Canadians?

Do you want to gain invaluable experience changing minds and saving lives through proven pro-life outreach projects?

If you have answered, “Yes!” to any or all of these questions, then CCBR’s Calgary Pro-Life Crash Course is for you!

This Crash Course focused on building up a groundswell of pro-life activists dedicated to changing hearts and minds and saving lives. The high calibre pro-life training will include talks on apologetics, strategy, the culture war, and the 3 different arms of the pro-life movement. The Crash Course will feature CCBR speakers from Ontario and Alberta, and is perfect for activists of any experience level.

This three-day course will not only cover much of the conversation skills and training we offer during our summer internship programs, but will also provide real activism experience on the front lines of the pro-life movement. You will join CCBR staff and volunteers on the streets of Calgary to expose the truth of abortion.

Here's what one past attendee said following a 24hr Crash Course in November 2022:

"You want to save babies?

-The training given is easy to understand and put into practice, the instructor was great - he built up enthusiasm and made it seem a bit more doable of a thing to do. And door-knocking was a good experience. Debriefing afterwards was good to hear everyone's story, the leaders were amazing, and just a very worthwhile way to spend your time."


Early-Bird (deadline: March 31): $100 | Students $50
