Challenges for Civic Education in the 21st Century
Jason L. S. Raia, COO of Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge, penned an article for the American Bar Association’s Judges Journal magazine’s 2023 Spring publication.
“It is a fraught and complicated time in America, but our democratic republic is more resilient than many people might think. As we approach the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 2026, it is an opportune time for civic renewal. It will require all freedom-loving individuals to work together, regardless of our political proclivities, to make a personal commitment to sharing our knowledge, skills, and dispositions with those young people who will carry them into the next century.”
Our high school civic education programs are in full swing! So far, in 2023, over 260 students traveled to Valley Forge to participate in our Spirit of America Youth Leadership program. More photos can be seen on our social media accounts. Click the links at the bottom of the email to follow us.
Our volunteer chapters are actively supporting our mission, including the Los Angeles County Chapter which recently held its annual fundraiser at the Valley Relics Museum. Attendees dressed in their favorite throwback attire while honoring patriots and raising funds to send students to our Spirit of America Youth Leadership program in Valley Forge.
