Why are we doing this?

Democracy and public service must be learned by each generation. It is our duty to teach them.

To learn; to lead; to serve.

In order for public servants to uphold the ideals of duty, honor, and justice, they must be taught why it is important. Through the Academy for Public Service students of service are supported in developing their ideas and challenging the status quo. We foster connections across generations of leaders to ensure the longevity of our democracy.

What we offer

Student Representatives from Arkansas host a House Floor session in the Arkansas House Committee rooms in the state capitol.
