Project Arizona is an elite program established in 2017 that consist in a semester-long program for young, outstanding leaders of the global freedom change. Now, it is organized by Liberty International!
How it works?
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 communities.
Project Arizona consists of 4 major pillars:
With Project Arizona, you are guaranteed an internship with leading state policy group, attorney office, media outlet or museum. Our concern is to match your candidacy with your internship provider. Thus you can be assured that your internship will benefit your career and strengthen your position on the market.
Internship providers represent broad spectrum of businesses but all of them provide high-quality and meaningful training. Internships are usually part-time and last three months. You can read more about our internship providers HERE
Education is a very important part of Project Arizona. We want students to better understand the history of the place (United States of America) and learn the mechanisms of free market economy 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 specifically 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.
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 a fundraiser.
We believe that living in a community means trying to understand local problems and engage in their solution. That is why we join forces with existing community service providers, particularly the ones who understand the importance of liberty. In the past we cooperated with Americans for Prosperity AZ and Generation Opportunity. We plan to engage our students to volunteer a few hours a month for their civic activities. From our point of view it is very important to engage our students in such activities, proving that charity can flourish in a free society and exposing them to the culture of compassion.
Project Arizona Class of 2020 will be held between January 3rd – March 23rd, 2020 which is around 12 weeks. You can send your application here until September 10th, 2019.
