Last year, Mercury One launched a new initiative — the Leadership Training Program — to fulfill a desire to advance the necessary skills and knowledge of our country's youth, who will one day assume positions of leadership and guide our communities and our nation. In collaboration with WallBuilders, Mercury One is offering a special opportunity for college students and recent college grads through an exploration of American history during three two-week sessions this summer.
This unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience, now in its second year, features two weeks of nonstop projects, research, lectures and outings for young people who are passionate about America's heritage and interested in learning about our founding values, principles and ideologies. Student participants will learn from program experts and guest lecturers and get hands-on experience with original historical documents and artifacts from the Mercury One collection.
Program topics include:
- A Biblical Worldview
- The Truth in History
- America's Godly Heritage
- Early Education in America
- How the Bible Influenced America
- American Exceptionalism
- God and the Constitution
- Reclaiming the Land
This year, Leadership Training Program participants will have the unique opportunity to take part in Mercury One's inaugural Mercury Museum event — Rights & Responsibilities — taking place from June 15-17. Session 1 participants will help prepare for the event and Session 2 participants will assist in running the event.
If you or someone you know would be interested in joining this summer's Leadership Training Program, fill out the application today. Mercury One is still accepting applicants for Sessions 2 and 3.
Really what encouraged me to apply was just the opportunity to do something completely different from what you see normally in school or normal life experiences. It's something that not many people are going around talking and teaching about — How the Bible influenced American history and really such an in-depth hands-on approach to American history.
—Bailey Kemp, an alumni member of the inaugural Leadership Training Program
I got to hold the 1936 Olympic torch. Just incredible things to see, artifacts from American history that are hundreds of years old. Just fascinating components of American history that you don't learn in the classroom, that you can only learn in places like this.
—Steve Jensen, an alumni member of the inaugural Leadership Training Program

Mercury One was built to inspire the world in the same way the United States space program shaped America's national destiny and the world. The organization seeks to restore the human spirit by helping individuals and communities help themselves through honor, faith, courage, hope and love. In the words of Glenn Beck:
We don't stand between government aid and people in need. We stand with people in need so they no longer need the government
Some of Mercury One's core initiatives include assisting our nation's veterans, providing aid to those in crisis and restoring the lives of Christians and other persecuted religious minorities. When evil prevails, the best way to overcome it is for regular people to do good. Mercury One is committed to helping sustain the good actions of regular people who want to make a difference through humanitarian aid and education initiatives.
