Join us for beer and brats in Acton’s “back yard” and help us say thank you (and good bye) to our summer class of Emerging Leaders. Come meet and mingle with this amazing group of young professionals as we send them off to create a free and virtuous society.
These 14 talented individuals have truly become part of the Acton team and we wouldn't be able to put on the world-class event Acton University without them. We are incredibly grateful for their hard work, discipline and devotion to our mission. This graduating class of our Emerging Leaders Program will be at the grill out, so stop by and say hi!
About EMerging LEaders
Since our founding, talented college students have spent their summers with us working and studying. Carefully selected out ofscores of outstanding applicants from prestigious universities and seminaries around the world, these young men and women are already recognized as successful young leaders in their communities and campuses.
This 8 week-long program blends leadership training, professional development, and a philosophical education to equip a new generation of leaders dedicated to Acton’s mission.
These Emerging Leadersreturn to their institutions with something greater than new skills and professional experience – they leave with a deeper appreciation for and a better understanding of the enduring principles of liberty that are essential to a prosperous society.
