This year’s students will see: Korean War Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam War Memorial, WWII Memorial and Reflecting Pool, Tour Mount Vernon and Arlington Cemetery, see a theatrical production, visit the Smithsonian’s, the FDR Memorial and much more.

Georgia students will join over 1,600 students from across the United States in activities that are designed to provide leadership training and encourage high school students to make a difference in their home communities.
