    Franklin Project Summit Welcome Remarks

    Joanne M. Hanley, Gettysburg Foundation President and Ed W. Clark, Superintendent of Gettysburg National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site, give Welcome Remarks during the opening ceremony of the Franklin Project Summit in Gettysburg on June 4, 2014.

    The Franklin Project is an effort to improve citizenship by giving every young person in America the opportunity to do a service year. Sometime between the ages of 18 and 28, the young person would do a fully paid, full-time year of service in one of an array of areas from conservation to education and everything in between. These young people will do good work and solve problems. But the real product is better young Americans.
