The “Great Task” Youth Leadership Program is for students, schools, 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 and decisions demonstrated by ordinary individuals confronted with extraordinary challenges during the battle. Using this knowledge, they will apply lessons of leadership and good character to identify community service projects in their own home communities.
