Student Orientation

The Trip Orientation Meeting on December 11, 2016 was held at the Mission Valley Library. Students were encouraged to become instant friends with "ice breaker" games, while parents were put to work completing the paperwork required for the trip.

This year we have twelve students representing seven different high schools and several ethnic groups. Some speak two or more languages and all are active in their schools and community service programs. They were chosen based upon a written application and an interview process where they met with FFVF members.

The trip includes a three day leadership conference in Valley Forge, a visit to Philadephia, and a three day tour of Washington, D.C. with special visits to Congress, and perhaps the White House.

All FFVF members are encouraged to attend the Student Orientation.
