It is an experience I will never forget and one which will be an invaluable tool as I work with my students this coming school year.

THANK YOU!!!

It was definitely a humbling experience to attend such a well-organized workshop. Freedoms Foundation, I want to thank the entire organization and all those involved in allowing me to attend. I truly believe that every educator that attended left there withsomething else in their tool box that will be beneficial in their teaching and development of our youth moving forward.

Deerfield Beach High

Because of the generosity of the Freedoms Foundation at Valley Forge (FFVF), Broward County Chapter, I had the opportunity to participate in the Teaching American History and The Medal of Honor Legacy workshop, held in Valley Forge, PA. The weeklong program, coordinated by dedicated FFVF members Gary Williams, Cory Etchberger and other individuals, provided me with valuable information I now share with family, friends and most importantly the youth I interact with at the Fort Lauderdale Sea Cadet program. The workshop was truly a life changing experience for me and I am grateful to have been a part of the event.

Cardinal Gibbins High School

Thanks to the generosity of the Broward County Chapter of Freedoms Foundation, I was able to take part in a one week teacher institute this past summer. Attending this institute has given me much greater insight into what it means to be an American, to know what sacrifice is, and to give me the tools to help pass this legacy on to my students as well as other teachers in my district.
