“My daughter Vanessa enjoyed participating in a recent Foundation for Economic Education seminar in Georgia. She's in high school now, and I was very impressed with the seminar and how much she learned about economics and freedom. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you giving Vanessa the opportunity to attend this seminar, and I commend you for making this positive environment available at a minimal price. If it wasn't for your generosity and that of other FEE sponsors, thousands of kids like Vanessa wouldn't have been able to attend a summer seminar like the one in Georgia. I am confident that the skills my daughter learned will be put to good use and that she will make you and FEE proud!” - Lilian Gonzalez

“At FEE, I was first exposed to ideas that would inspire the rest of my time in university, and eventually my career.” - Zachary Caceres

“[I really enjoyed this] opportunity to learn about not only what is happening in America, but throughout the world. FEE’s goal is to 'inspire, educate, and connect' and I’m proud to say it has achieved all that and more with me.” - Jeanette H.

“This seminar has provided me with the knowledge necessary to educate my peers and support an educated, non-biased argument for free market economics.” - Santana W.

“I've learned so much this weekend and I just wish I had this kind of high-quality, engaging exposure to economics earlier in my education!” - Samantha Jackson

“As a student, the principles of liberty and a just society are rarely defended. FEE has determined the course of my life, my beliefs, and future.”

“There is so much to learn and frankly, many of our schools are failing to teach many of the concepts that FEE is. It is so important for young people to understand economics even if they, like myself, don’t plan on majoring in economics.”

“In the past I had always viewed economics as boring. But now, I know that I can learn economics and have fun doing so.”

“[I am thankful for] this wonderful opportunity for me to enjoy these great lectures and also meeting new people [representing] today’s current and future leaders.”

“This seminar has been eye opening. When I turn 18, I will have a better understanding of how my vote really matters and works.” - Kaila S.

"In 1971, as a college student, I attended a weekend seminar at FEE. It gave me a completely new perspective that has guided my thinking on economics ever since." - Joe Forshaw

"The Communicating Liberty seminar... was as influential in my intellectual and character development as the event that first led me to become a libertarian four years ago." - Lauren Blankenship

"I sometimes feel ... that no one holds views similar to mine. Thank you for opening my eyes and making me realize I am not alone."

"The Foundation for Economic Education was the institution that brought me onto the side of the free market." - Phillip Moran

"I learned so much. FEE had great speakers and information, great material to follow up with, I've made great connections and in some cases great friendships. Thanks for the opportunity!" - Agata Fowler

“I honestly appreciate all the thought that was put into making this seminar what it was. I now think about the world in a whole different economic light (specifically with regards to what it means to provide value to the world through storytelling).”
