Students to hear 'voices of innovation'

September 18, 2009

Expanding on what has proved to be a beneficial experience for students in previous years, Penn State Brandywine's Schreyer Honors Program is hosting its annual “Voices of Innovation" seminar series beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 28 in the Commons Building, room 203.

The purpose of the seminar series is for students to learn about organizations that have moved beyond using a Band-Aid fix for community concerns. Students will hear how these organizations are implementing innovative ideas and strategies for creating and maintaining sustained change for populations with an identified need.

The first organization featured in the series will be Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge, represented by Vice President of Education Jason Raia. The Freedoms Foundation was established after World War II to honor patriotism and good citizenship. This non-profit organization, with more than 30 chapters nationwide, provides a wide range of educational and awards programs for students, teachers, and citizens to gain a greater awareness and appreciation of the principles and responsibilities of a free and democratic society. For more information on the organization, please visit http://www.freedomsfoundation.org/.

This free event is open to all Brandywine students.
