2.2 Family Foundation Worldview Academy – Richmond – Registration Deadline Is May 31

Richmond, Virginia

Wednesdays, from June 7 through July 26, 2017, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Cost: $50/student; $85 cap per family. Registration deadline is May 31. Participants should dress in business casual attire.

The Family Foundation is opening its 2017 Summer Worldview Seminar to all college students and high school seniors. Students will have an opportunity to hear educated, intentional discussions on why a biblical worldview is crucial to the political arena and understand the “why” behind standing for life, marriage, and religious liberty. Participants will have the opportunity to hear from experts in these fields and also participate in facilitated discussion to encourage a deeper personal understanding. They will learn how to respond to challenging situations in an informed manner, and how to impact a culture that attempts to eliminate the biblical worldview.

This workshop is open to rising sixth grade students and older.
