In this four-day conference, high school students interact with experts on citizenship, democracy, the judiciary, the political process, and the free enterprise system. 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.

We will be sponsoring students from a variety of local high schools for the 2021 Spirit Of America (SOA) Youth Leadership program in Valley Forge, PA. Our sponsorship includes round-trip air fare as well as tuition and room and board at Freedoms Foundation’s campus in Valley Forge. Dates for this conference will be in the spring.
Any Sacramento area high school student is eligible to apply, however preference is given to Juniors, because they are studying US History during the academic year.
