This four-day program will give high school students an insight into the people, places, and ideas that shaped our 40th President, allowing them to better understand why and how Ronald Reagan changed the country and the world and how they can do the same. The very essence of President Reagan’s character is found at the Ranch—his humility, optimism, hard work, love for freedom, and belief in the American Dream. The Ranch embodies his vision of what America was, is, and could be –a “Shining City on a Hill.”
Today, young people are taught that America is the exact opposite –a place of racism, oppression, and limited opportunity– and that our most important systems and institutions– the Constitution, free enterprise, free speech, and religious liberty among them – are simply instruments of this oppression. This program will help students grapple with important questions about American identity and better equip them to understand and defend the principles of freedom.
Throughout this program, students will hear from some of the Conservative Movement’s brightest minds, be inspired by their stories and insights, meet like-minded peers from across the country, and tour Rancho del Cielo, Ronald Reagan’s “Western White House” and home of 25 years.
• Learn from top leaders in the Conservative Movement about how to champion your principles at your school & beyond!
• Walk in President Reagan’s footsteps at Rancho del Cielo
• Meet and network with like-minded students and participate in discussion with fellow students
• Receive valuable resource materials
• Improve your critical thinking and debate skills
• Become a young leader in the Conservative Movement!
