The Liberty Learning Foundation Mission:
Liberty Learning Foundation is a non-profit organization facilitating active civics and character programs in K-12 classrooms and orchestrating immersive events that empower schools, parents, local leaders and businesses to take ownership in the future of community and country.
Unlike traditional school civics programs, the Super Citizen Program lives outside classroom walls by engaging the entire community in the success of its citizens.
Our Method: Excitement + Learning + Stakeholder Engagement
Liberty Learning Foundation’s Super Citizen Program and live theatrical events are successfully helping schools teach more powerful civics, character, financial literacy and career lessons in K-12 classrooms. The active civics program and interactive resources empower educators to teach these crucial lessons in less time, with higher retention, and alongside STEM subjects, to round out the equation for truly outstanding citizens.
The experience flourishes through the donations and ownership of the mission by local parents, business owners, press and community leaders. In addition, the two events that bookend the 10-week in-school program create social capital–a space for building deeper relationships–as stakeholders, schools and students unite around the inclusive and important title of “citizen.”
Our Message: Civic Engagement to Improve Child, Community & Country
Imagine a generation of students who excel in teach-to-test subjects but have little knowledge of civics, character, financial responsibility and career readiness. Will math and science alone continue our nation’s progress? Our students deserve to learn these guiding lessons–as well as the great American story that gives context to their important roles in our country’s future. We must teach them that they hold titles more important than “lawyer,” “millionaire,” or “celebrity.” That title is “citizen.”
And educators are begging to teach those crucial lessons. They’re begging for tools that engage the tech-distracted generation and immerse them in grand experiences that boost retention and make a lasting impression. And because money and time are the most limited commodities in the classroom, they need the tools to be free and flexible.
That’s where we are making monumental impacts. With help from passionate donors, Liberty Learning Foundation is placing the groundbreaking Super Citizen Program in the hands of eager educators. And, because we understand that donations alone don’t ensure success, we work hand-in-hand with schools, donors and local volunteers to maximize the potential of the programs and the students themselves.
We donate teaching tools. We put on exciting performances. We train teachers. We get the community involved. In short, we create and carry out grand learning experiences that teach, inspire and empower our Next Great Americans.
If you believe that character, history and civic responsibility can, and must, be taught despite budget cuts, please join us in this historic mission.
We hear time and again about the importance of reaching children when they are young. We began with a belief that we can make the most impact on future generations by reinforcement of civic and character concepts in multiple grades. The model of early-and-often touch points through graduation is working.
