High School Programs 

A four-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.

While most students are sponsored by a partner organization, high school students interested in participating can sign up for the February conference. Online registration is available here or email education@ffvf.org for cost and other information.
