The Generation Joshua Fund

"Let us take care of our rights and we therein take care of our
prosperity. Slavery is ever preceded by sleep."

The Home School Foundation and Home School Legal Defense have a
vision to make sure that future generations of homeschoolers clearly
understand two important lessons: even now much is at stake and they
can make a difference. To communicate these truths, HSLDA and HSF
are participating in a joint project called the Generation Joshua

Under this program, HSLDA will be focusing its energy on helping
students become involved in civic processes, and the Foundation will
focus on developing educational materials.

To accomplish its part, the Foundation has established the Generation
Joshua Fund. Through this Fund, HSF will pay for developing a civics
curriculum and other related resources.

Our objective for these materials-to provide homeschoolers with an in-
depth historical and Biblical perspective of what it means to be a
U.S. citizen in the 21st century.

Our ultimate goal-to educate generations of "Joshuas" willing to go
into our land and stand for what is right. Perhaps some will even
take positions of influence and leadership in government.

We recognize that this is a long-range project with little immediate
return. But we feel challenged to step up and play the role we sense
God is calling us to take, to do our part in making America a place
where "the people rejoice."
