Education has been a pivot point
for social change throughout the
history of the United States. Affording
new opportunities for all people
to live more fulfilled lives, education
offers individuals the opportunity
to fully exercise their constitutional
liberties with wisdom and enlightenment.
The Thirteen-Fifty Foundation believes
that in addition to the rewards
a formal education can bring, individuals
also can learn through active and
purposeful service to and within
their communities. Through its activities, the foundation seeks
to further educate individuals about
the values and rewards of community
service and engaged citizenship.
Through the Reaffirmation of Citizenship
Oath, the foundation strives to
reconnect and engage citizens in
a thoughtful process of what it
means to be an American and the
responsibilities of citizenship.
