Young America's Foundation

Is your middle school student looking for an adventure in leadership?

This May 3-4, 2024, step into the world of President Ronald Reagan’s youth at his Boyhood Home in Dixon, Illinois, with the Young America’s Foundation’s inspiring Middle School Expedition. For only $30, students in grades 6-8 will tackle the “Reagan Resilience Challenge,” a series of interactive activities designed to teach pivotal values like determination and optimism that shaped a President and a nation.

Tour Reagan’s Boyhood Home and trace his path from Dixon to destiny. Engage in dynamic challenges modeled after military training to hone your problem-solving, leadership, and teamwork skills. The Expedition is packed with historical tours, enlightening educational sessions that delve into the political and social climate of Reagan’s era, and mentorship from distinguished figures, ensuring a deep appreciation for the foundational values of freedom and enterprise.

Gain insights from leaders like Dr. Paul Kengor, Dr. Michael Clark, and Kali Fontanilla, and participate in a unique session with retired Special Forces Green Beret Chris Johnson. Forge friendships, develop leadership skills, and create lasting memories.

YAF provides financial assistance for tuition and travel to ensure that this transformative experience is open to all young leaders.
Join the legacy. Join the leadership. Join the Expedition.
