The "Great Task” Student Leadership Excursions
Experiential Programs for Youth in Community Leadership


Great Task weekends are two-day intensive leadership experiences that go beyond curriculum-based field trips and ask your students or youth group to apply leadership lessons from the battle of Gettysburg to their own lives, schools, and community.

Great Task excursions are offered weekends from mid-July to mid-October. Pre and post visit work is required, including the assignment of historical identities and leadership teams, and Great Task community leadership projects after your Gettysburg experience. Limited housing and travel accommodation assistance may also be available.

If you would like to learn more about this opportunity for your school or youth group, and to receive an application, please email us here.
