A THSC Watchmen is an intern who serves within the THSC Public Policy Department as a legislative analyst and lobbyist for the homeschool community.
The role of a THSC Watchmen is to track bills filed in the Texas legislature and analyze them for content that affects Texas families and homeschoolers; to promote THSC’s priority bills and lobby the legislature to pass them; and to interact with Texas legislators and staff members to promote THSC’s legislative goals.
The THSC Watchmen program presents homeschool graduates with opportunities to develop skills such as critical analysis, professional writing, public speaking, networking and teamwork. The training and experience gained by THSC Watchmen are valuable because they involve learning practical skills which are useful in a wide variety of professional environments.
THSC Watchmen work together to overcome challenges, build lifelong relationships and deepen their commitment to Christ while they serve the homeschool community and protect families in the Texas legislature.
