Scholarships for Youth Leadership Program

Archdiocese and Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge Announce Student Scholarships for Youth Leadership Program

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Secondary Schools in collaboration with the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge (FFVF) recently hosted a joint news conference to announce a scholarship opportunity allowing Archdiocesan high school students to participate in FFVF’s Spirit of America Youth Leadership Program (SOA).

This initiative is made possible through the generosity of the Connelly Foundation and seeks to amplify instruction on the principles of civic responsibility. The SOA is a four-day conference for high school students that provides dynamic interaction with experts on citizenship, democracy, the judiciary system, the political process, and the free enterprise economic system. There are five sessions planned for the current academic year.

Mr. David Harmer, Chief Executive Officer of the FFVF; Ms. Nancy Kurtz, Interim Superintendent of Secondary Schools for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia; and Kelly Williamson, a Sophomore at Lansdale Catholic High School were present and offered remarks during the news conference. Ms. Williamson was a participant in SOA during fall 2021.
