Jesse Helms Free Enterprise Leadership Conference 2005

Takes place June 1 - 2 at the IBIS Hotel in Montevideo

Posted: June 2, 2005

The U.S. Embassy Montevideo and The Jesse Helms Center Foundation are sponsoring a Free Enterprise Leadership Conference for Uruguayan high school students. The conference is designed to expose students to free market principles, character education and leadership training. 110 students from a Las Piedras high school are participating in this conference.

The Free Enterprise Leadership Conference (FELC), historically held at The Jesse Helms Center in Wingate, NC and Campbell University and other national and international locations, is offered free of charge to participants. Hundreds of high school students participate each year in this exciting program. FELC is an effective way to promote the students' understanding of business, personal responsibility, and the opportunities available to them in the free enterprise system.

Founded in 1987, the work of the Helms Center involves education, historical preservation and public policy promotion through a variety of programs for students, scholars, and the general public.
