Student Leadership Programs
High School Programs:
A three-day conference for high school students to interact with experts on citizenship, democracy, the free enterprise system, the judicial system, and the American political process. The program includes thought-provoking lectures, historical tours, and experiential workshops, all designed to develop leadership skills and deepen an understanding of the rights and responsibilities of engaged citizenship.
Price of Freedom Conference
Designed for Eagle Scouts, Sea Scout Quartermasters, or Venturing Scouts that have earned the Silver Award, this program challenges participants to learn about the sacrifices made to establish and protect the ideals of a free society. In addition to discussions and guest lectures on current issues of citizenship, patriotism, leadership, and heroism, the program includes tours of Colonial Philadelphia and Valley Forge National Park.
An advanced leadership program for high school achievers who want to learn how to be catalysts for positive change in the world. The week-long program includes a field service/learning experience, public policy courses and discussions, and workshops in leadership and communications to help students prepare for the college application process.
Student Entrepreneur Experience
A week-long program that gives high school students, particularly those from low-income, at-risk environments, the chance to develop self-confidence and career skills that can help them achieve success in and out of school. The curriculum includes team-building, economics, business plan development, marketing, the free enterprise system, and entrepreneurship.
Elementary & Middle School Programs
Birth of a Free Nation
This week-long residential academic tour helps younger students develop a greater knowledge and appreciation of American history. Guided visits to important historical sites, such as Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the National Constitution Center, and Valley Forge National Park, among others, complement the Freedoms Foundation classroom instruction. Special appearances and presentations by actors portraying Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington "bring history to life."
Like the Birth of a Free Nation, this week-long residential program develops a better understanding of American history, through visits not only to Colonial Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Dutch Country, but to sites in New York as well. Students will spend a day in the Big Apple with site visits to Ground Zero, Battery Park, Time Square, Fifth Avenue, and St. Patrick's Cathedral.
Cornerstones of Freedom
This academic tour includes Colonial Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington, DC. With an overnight in our nation's capital, students will visit the National Mall to explore memorials to Lincoln, Jefferson, WWII, Vietnam, Korea, as well as stops at the Smithsonian's Air and Space and American History Museums. No visit to DC would be complete without a visit to the class' Representative on the Hill and a chance to see the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence at the National Archives.
All academic tours can be customized to fit the needs of the individual school or class. For more information contact Vice President of Education, at 610.933.8825 x 233.
