What We Have Achieved

We inaugurated Project Arizona in early January 2018, when six students from Poland, Ukraine, and Croatia came to Phoenix. We organized for them an intensive program that consisted of:

  • Internships
  • Each intern was placed at a different organization, and gained valuable work experience and acquaintance with the American work ethics.

  • Education
  • – Weekly afternoon classes at ASU, delivered by Professor Donald Critchlow, director of Center for Political Thought and Leadership
    – CATO Institute Policy Perspectives 2018 Conference (January 18th , 2018)
    – Objectivist Seminar organized by Ayn Rand Institute in Irvine, CA (January 29th, 2018)
    – Arizona Freedom Summit (February 2-3, 2018)
    – Global Aerospace Conference organized by Americas Aerospace Cluster (February 25th, 2018)
    – Grassroots Leadership Academy organized by Americans for Prosperity twice in March, 2018
    – Hillsdale College Forum on Freedom and Western Civilization in Prescott (March 5-6th, 2018)
    – Seminar on American History and Free Market Economics organized organized explicitly for Project Arizona students by ASU Center for Political Thought and Leadership and Language of Liberty Institute (March 14-16th, 2018)
    – Western Conservative Conference organized by Western Journalist Journalism Center (March 23-24th, 2018)

  • Networking
  • Meeting successful people dedicated to liberty and entrepreneurship is vitally important for our young leaders to build their own networks and use them to further their own cause. Some of our outstanding networking contacts:

    – Political figures: Warren Petersen (Arizona’s State Senator), Nicholas Sarwark (National Chairman of the Libertarian Party)
    – Leaders of non-government organizations: Ronald Ludders (and his Arizona Project), Christina Sanderfur (VP at Goldwater Institute), Le Templar (VP at Goldwater Institute), Lawrence Reed (President, Foundation for Economic Education)
    – Freedom activists: dr Tom Patterson, Thomas Bingel, Marc Victor, Roy Miller, dr Barry Asmus, dr David Friedman, Jeffrey Tucker
    – Businessmen: Henry Ritter, Wojtek Al Grabowski, Cynthia Diehl
