The core mission of Constituting America is to educate Americans about the Constitution and the rights and liberties it provides and protects for all of us. We accomplish that mission through several programs, including our keystone program — the national We The Future Contest for kids. We also have an exciting new program that features Constituting America Founder and Co-Chair Janine Turner and daughter, National Youth Director Juliette Turner, speaking in person and via Skype and Google Hangout to classrooms around the country. Our 90 in 90 Study Program: History Holds the Key to the Future is a scholastic study with essays on the founding documents of our country, written by constitutional scholars from the best universities and law schools in the country.

Louie Johnston, Jr.
American Constitution Center
Louie E. Johnston Jr., is seen regularly on the Fox television network, heard on radio talk shows nationally, and is the Founder of American Constitution Center.org, a free on-line Public Library. His mission is preserving America’s true history by educating, inspiring, then motivating Americans to learn and restore the unique American system of fundamental principles, values and virtues of our Founding Fathers.
Sandi was just a Mom from the health care industry that was concerned about our children’s education relative to our country, our founding fathers and documents, and the Exceptionalism of the American people! So, with other concerned Moms, she put together a day long, fun Constitution Camp for kids to learn in an interactive manner through focus groups and games designed to reinforce their learning. During the games period, kids compete with each other, practice collaboration, and are rewarded for their learning efforts. Sandi will be happy to assist with and/or provide you a Camp Guidebook to help you develop your own Constitution Camp for kids in your community or classroom.
