HERO PROJECT ($40)
We will empower our current generation to form a link to the Hero Generation of World War II. Through getting to know these amazing men and women who won the War, they will learn what qualities Heroes have. They will see what is required of a Hero Generation, and gain a desire to emulate those individuals they study.
Scholars will be mentored by both the living and the dead by hearing their stories, being invited behind the scenes, and coming to understand that each and every person has a unique mission to perform in this life.
Scholars will read challenging classics, study timelines and documents, participate in amazing simulations, and complete a compilation of their heroes.
