For Elementary, Middle and High School Students

History Encounters

The History Encounters Educational Travel Program for Elementary, Middle, and High School Students invites you to “Step into History.” We take school groups on a journey to the places where our country was founded, including Independence Hall and Valley Forge National Historical Parks. This is your chance to learn from experts and experience history and civic engagement in a whole new way!

 

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.

Most students are sponsored by local FFVF Chapters, but students without sponsors can sign up for the February conference.
Online registration is available here or email education@ffvf.org  for cost and other information.
