For many young people today, the struggle for freedom and liberty is merely a chapter in a history book. The Reagan Legacy Foundation Liberty Education Tours (LET) sought to change that. This unique student exchange program offered future leaders tangible education in the principles of liberty as they studied the words and actions of President Reagan and other great leaders while visiting sites significant in the history of freedom in the United States and central Europe.
In this tour students studied perspectives from U.S. President Ronald Reagan to:
- Compare the policies of Democracy and Socialism.
- Learn about the American founding principles and the legacy of liberty.
- Explore the history of Communism in modern Europe and the influences that led to its demise.
- Visit the sites that reflect the life and character of President Reagan and compelled him to be a defender of freedom.
Participants heard incredible speakers, met like-minded friends, networked with leaders, engaged in discussions, and received valuable resources. At the conclusion of the Liberty Education Tour students returned to their communities as a Freedom Fellow — knowing the precepts of Liberty and fortified to act in defense of those principles.
