Become a Mentor 
Lead out on the path to Greatness!

Serve in your Community!

The Hero Project will now be offered in conjunction with Sword of Freedom
 for a full length 3 day training!
This amazing class is designed to empower our current Hero Generation to form a link to the Hero Generation of World War II. Through getting to know these amazing men and women who won the War, they will learn what qualities Heroes have. They will see what is required of a Hero Generation, and gain a desire to emulate those individuals they study. Students will be mentored by both the living and the dead by hearing their stories, being invited behind the scenes, and coming to understand that each and every person has a unique mission to perform in this life. Eisenhower didn't win the War. Churchill didn't win the War. The man swabbing the deck did. The man who built the plane did. The women who put together the code breaking machines did. They all had their part in the ultimate victory, and it wouldn't have happened without each and every one of them working together toward a common goal.  This Scholar Project can be presented in a one or two semester class - both approaches are in the mentor manual.

All New Self-Directed Scholar Project
The Edison Project 
What happens after Key of Liberty, Shakespeare Conquest, Pyramid Project and QUEST?  
The Edison Project, that's what.
Offered only at the SLC training in Utah this year. Each home school group or commonwealth 

school should do whatever it takes to get 2 mentors trained in this ALL NEW training.

"It's amazing!  My daughter grew so much. She's become the woman I've known was inside of her.  I am so grateful for how much she grew while taking this project.  My daughter is going to college almost two years ahead of her peers and this project helped!"  Is what one mother said of her child.

"My son created the most amazing plan.  It involved books, it involved classes; it involved working with professionals in his area of interest.  It involved courage and compassion.  And in the end he was a new person, filled with the confidence that he could achieve his dreams."--Mother of student in the Edison Project.

Students develop their own specific area of interest, create a detailed plan with the mentor and then pursue it.  They master the knowledge of the 6 Powers: Knowledge Power, Task Power, Authority Power, Relationship Power, Material Power, & Personal Power. They learn the skill of how to turn the seemingly unattainable into reachable steps.  They learn how to engage the specific mentors required to fulfill their dreams.  They become life-long learners.  They create. They show courage.  And they change. Don't miss out.  Sign up now. (Space is limited.)  Your children will benefit greatly!

“I’m teaching a 5 pillar course.  I was impressed to invite a friend to study with us (SayGoBeDo).  She commented to me that this course is exactly what she needed.  The study of great literature, participating in the colloquia and transformational writing has had a healing effect on her.  I’m finding that it’s changing me also, preparing me to know how to inspire and mentor my children.  I never viewed myself as scholarly until now.  I am reading more than I did in high school and college and enjoying every minute of it.  I’m starting to realize that I have specific geniuses, that there is greatness in me, and I can give something of value to others.  Through this course I’m realizing who I am and what I have to offer and that God has created me for a purpose and it is transforming my life.”

    3. Relationship Power
  • A Working Knowledge of Agency, Scholar Projects, and Great Mentoring
 


PRACTICE SCHOLAR PROJECTS inspire your youth to:

  • Start doing the "hard things"
  • Learn time management
  • Discover more about who they are
  • Understand their duty as a citizen
  • Study for extended periods of time out of personal choice
  • Write independently and with insight
  • Think deeper, study things that may not interest them at first
How do you know if your YOUTH is ready for the Practice Scholar level?
  • Are they asking to be with their peers a lot?
  • Do they tell you that you are interrupting their study time?
  • Have they had a good Core Phase where they've learned right from wrong?
  • Do they have initiative?  Is it time they learn initiative?
  • Do they enjoy learning?
  • Can they read?
  • Are they ages 12-16?
If your youth dislikes learning or just isn't interested, its okay; there's a way to help change that.  Our Practice Scholar Projects are fun-filled, interesting and most of all include a community of peers.  This is especially appealing to the homeschooled youth.


APPRENTICE SCHOLAR PROJECTS teach students to:
  • Transition from studying 2-4 hours a day to 6-10 hours a day!
  • Become a self-directed scholar
  • Gain scholar skills such as: reading difficult works, writing, debating, teaching, researching, using mentors
  • Be a homesteader rather than a squatter
  • Take action
  • Find personal mission
  • Gain a vision for "contributing" to society
If your student is between the ages of 14 and 16 and has a desire for a great education, they are probably ready for this level.
