Project Arizona is a semester-long project for young, outstanding leaders of the global freedom change. In Phoenix, these international talents conduct meaningful internships, academic seminar at ASU, and fruitful networking. They gain a thorough understanding of the ideas of liberty and how to implement them when they return to their own communities..

Education is very important part of Project Arizona. We want students to understand better the history of place where they are living now (United States of America) and learn mechanism of free market economics, the system that made it prosperous. There are two major elements of the educational plan that Project Arizona offers: - Weekly participation in three classes of American History and Political Philosophy offered by Arizona State University Center for Political Thought and Leadership (ASU CPTL) - Designed especially for Project Arizona 3-day long Seminar on Free Market Economics and practical implementation of the freedom philosophy. The Seminar is co-sponsored by ASU CPTL, Center for Study of Economic Liberty and the Language of Liberty Institute. Would you like to learn more about Education part? Click HERE
During Project Arizona we will be participating in many events, meetings and conferences - all of them are a great opportunity for networking. In the past we had a chance to meet David Friedman (economist), Lawrence Reed (Foundation for Economic Education), Ron Paul (Congressman), Arthur Brooks (Entreprise Institute), Darcy Olsen (Generation Justice), Christina Sandefur (Goldwater Institute) and many more! We also organize our own events - networking meetings and fundraiser.
We believe that living in community means to understand local problems and to engage in solution. That is why we join forces with existing community service providers, especially the ones who stress the importance of freedom. In the past we cooperated with Americans for Prosperity AZ (https://americansforprosperity.org/state/arizona) and Generation Opportunity (https://generationopportunity.org) and plan to engage our students to volunteer few hours a month for their civic activities. From our point of view it is very important to engage our students in such activities thus proving that charity is possible in free society and exposing them to the culture of compassion.
