The Impact Since 2010
The Super Citizen Program engages students in learning crucial lessons in civics, character, financial responsibility, career building and our Great American Story. Through grants and donations, Liberty Learning Foundation donates these free tool kits to teachers and puts on powerful performances that increase understanding and retention of concepts.
Liberty Learning Foundation orchestrates kickoffs, celebrations, teacher training and volunteer coordination to make sure students have educational experiences they will never forget. In addition, when local heroes are honored at Graduation Celebrations, the entire community is re-energized as students honor local heroes from the stage. This all-hands-on-deck approach creates a culture of support, guidance and empowerment for hometown America’s youth.
The Next Great Americans Bus Tour arrives at schools to put on high-energy educational performances to kick off the Super Citizen Program in schools across the country. The 45-minute theatrical show features original music, video and an awe-inspiring show by Libby Liberty. The costumed character brings the Statue of Liberty to life and introduces students to the program they will begin when the bus rolls away. Press, business leaders and local officials are always on-hand to show community support for our Next Great Americans!
The Graduation Celebration is likely the most emotional and memorable piece of the Super Citizen Experience. Local dignitaries, press, community leaders and parents are on-hand as students receive graduation certificates, recite the Super Citizen Pledge and honor local heroes from stage. There’s seldom a dry eye in the room.
Average Test Scores
Through in-depth learning, real-world practice and self-examination, students discover and define their important roles in America’s future. Lessons in civics, character, financial literacy, and American history create a road map for outstanding young citizens.
Pre and post-program test scores generated through in-class online testing showed an average improvement of 18% – from 63% pre-test to 81% post-test for the Hands on Liberty Program, and an average improvement of 19%—from 58% pre-test to 77% post-test for the Super Citizen Program.
And there are intrinsic benefits which are impossible to quantify: as students honor heroes from stage, they are transformed. Their gratitude and big-picture comprehension is palpable. Those are the life lessons that make an indelible impact in the classroom, the community and the country. And they are critical to the success of our Next Great Americans.
