The "Great Task” Student Leadership Excursions
Experiential Programs for Youth in Community Leadership
Gettysburg National Military Park and The Gettysburg Foundation are now accepting applications for “Great Task” weekends – 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.
“The 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 is also available; see additional questions below.
For more information about the program, including testimonials, photographs and videos, please visit the Gettysburg Foundation website
