Adults Over Age 25 Can Now Experience the 2018 Forge Summit!

Have you ever wanted to experience the essentials of the Forge Leadership Summit firsthand? Would you like a taste of what the students experience, hearing from some of our best speakers, taking part in the legislative experience in the Ohio Statehouse, and more?

… Well, now you can! 

Join us on the Friday of the 2018 Forge Leadership Summit for “Forge For A Day,” designed specifically for you as a supporter of Forge!  We know how much Forge supporters have enjoyed the Forge Showcase Reception, and we really wanted to increase your ability to participate directly in Forge programming earlier in that day if your schedule allows!

Here’s what’s in store for you on Friday July 27th in downtown Columbus, OH:

See the difference you’ve made in young leaders’ lives as you watch the Class of 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 Forge Academy students graduate on the House Floor.

Then, that evening – join us for a special dinner and the annual Forge Showcase Reception at The Vue Columbus.
