During this segment, we will highlight the importance of developing leaders of character to serve across all elements of our society. We will recall the recent anniversary of the Battle of Iwo Jima as an example of incredible selflessness and courage, and discuss how it is critical we develop character strengths and leadership skills in the next generation of leaders. We will provide a brief overview of the gap that exists in many classrooms today with regards to intentional leader and character development with youth and share why we created a dynamic partnership to help address these issues.
Key Message: Leveraging cutting-edge technology towards our efforts at making accomplished leaders (Veterans) available to speak about important character and leadership traits in the classroom, using curriculum designed by the Center for American Values (and shaped by Medal of Honor Recipients).
