Training the next generation’s leaders
I found this great information sounds like a terrific opportunity.
Each summer, Patriot Academy helps to train the leaders of the next generation and this year Patriot Academy is adding an adult track for today’s generation. For almost a week (July 30 – August 4, 2012), students from across the nation will learn the legislative process on the floor of the Texas State Capitol. They will write bills and guide those bills through the legislative process, learn debate and communication techniques, and receive training in Biblical worldview and American constitutional philosophy. If you know of any young people with a desire to be future leaders, we highly encourage you to send them to Patriot Academy! And if you’re interested in helping support a student, please consider giving a contribution towards scholarships.

Patriot Academy is a five-day leadership training program where students from all across the nation age sixteen to twenty-five learn about America’s system of government from a Biblical worldview. Each summer, young people from around the nation come to the Texas State Capitol to form a fully functioning mock legislative body drafting legislation, debating bills, and passing laws. Students participate in fast-paced, interactive workshops on media relations, public speaking, campaigning techniques and the Founding Fathers’ philosophy of government. Current and former elected officials and experts share their personal experience in government and discuss today’s most relevant issues. Today, Patriot Academy is the premier conservative political training camp in the nation, training young people to effectively engage in every aspect of government, whether as an elected official or an active citizen. As our students are equipped to effect change for the issues that matter most to them, Patriot Academy is fulfilling its vision to raise up a new generation to lead the change in America.
New for 2012! “Patriot Academy: Today’s Generation”
Over the years, requests have been made to have a Patriot Academy Session for adults over 25. We are excited to announce the unveiling of our new adult track program “Patriot Academy: Today’s Generation”!
Many of you are mothers, fathers, singles, employees, business leaders, neighbors, and yes, even a few candidates and public servants – all involved in everyday life. You are concerned about the direction our Nation is headed and want to know how you can be involved, how you can make a difference and stand in the gap!
Now is your chance to learn the election and legislative processes from the ground up! The Adult Track will be formulated with you in mind. Not only will you learn how bills are written and the committee process works, but how to effectively lobby your elected representatives and work to get patriots elected in your community and state. Speakers will address specifically the situations we adults face as we wonder how to make a difference within our sphere of influence.
By the end of the week’s training, you will be able to confidently carry the Torch of Freedom while effectively passing it to the next generation!
