History can do more than instruct; it can also inspire. The “Great Task” Youth Leadership Program is for student, school, or youth groups in grade levels 7 to 12, looking for intensive leadership and character-building experiences. The “Great Task” Youth Leadership Program is based upon the ideals set forth in President Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, “It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion…”
While in Gettysburg, participants learn about the actions, decisions, leadership and other traits demonstrated by ordinary individuals confronted with the extraordinary challenges during the battle. Participating students will then work to apply lessons of leadership and good character to identified community service projects in their own home communities.
Apply now for on-site experiences in fall 2021.
This award winning program is a joint partnership between Gettysburg National Military Park and the American Battlefield Trust with financial support by the Bowe Stewart Foundation.
