TFAS Launches New Program on Leadership and The American Presidency

//////////////////////

TFAS is now accepting applications for Leadership & The American Presidency (LTAP), a new innovative program developed in partnership with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute.

TFAS is now accepting applications for the LTAP Class of 2016. If you know an outstanding college student who is destined to lead, please encourage them to apply online today at www.DCinternships.org/LTAP.

This exciting, one-of-a-kind program will bring college students with strong leadership potential to Washington, D.C. where they will study lessons from the American presidency, while developing the skills necessary to become civic-minded leaders ready to change the world.

The Leadership and the American Presidency course will include simulations designed to help students develop into influential leaders of tomorrow by learning from some of our country's most powerful dignitaries past and present.
The Leadership and the American Presidency course will include simulations designed to help students develop into influential leaders of tomorrow by learning from some of our country’s most powerful dignitaries past and present.

Through hands-on simulations, case studies and creative teaching methods, students will examine some of the greatest leadership challenges in the history of our country: from George Washington and the Revolutionary War, to JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis, to Ronald Reagan urging Secretary Gorbachev to “tear down this wall.”

“These practical lessons of leadership, as told through the lens of our nation’s top elected officials, will show future leaders the kind of responsibility and integrity that it takes to be an effective and honorable leader,” said Shane Mazzella, vice president of U.S. Programs.

Students in the new LTAP program will join our TFAS student body of six other D.C. summer programs. In addition to taking an academic course accredited by George Mason University, students will intern full-time and participate in site briefings, guest lectures and field trips that will further develop their personal leadership skills and deepen their understanding of American history.

The new educational program brings together two nonprofits with a shared goal of developing strong leaders.

As part of the LTAP program, students will attend site briefings at the White House, U.S. Capitol, Pentagon and other institutions significant to the office of the presidency.

“Both TFAS and the Reagan Foundation share an interest in educating future leaders about the principles of liberty,” said TFAS President Roger Ream (ICPES 76). “We are delighted to be working together to develop this innovative educational program.”

The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute is the nonprofit organization created by President Reagan and specifically charged by him with continuing his legacy and sharing his principles – individual liberty, economic opportunity, global democracy and national pride.

The Reagan Foundation operates the Reagan presidential library in Simi Valley, California, and sponsors educational programs including the GE-Reagan Foundation Scholarship Program for college students and the Ronald Reagan Student Leadership Program for high school students.

Together, TFAS and the Reagan Foundation are working to recruit a strong inaugural class of LTAP students for the summer of 2016. If you know an outstanding college student who is destined to lead, please encourage them to apply online today at www.DCinternships.org/LTAP.
