The Intrepid Museum’s Power of One program allows students to meet community members who share their experiences and insights about the challenges to achieve success, the importance of civic involvement and a love of their country. It is based on the notion that a single event can change a young person’s life or start them on the road to change.
The Power of One program is consistent with the mission of the Intrepid to “honor our heroes, educate the public and inspire our youth.”
This Power of One event is supported by INTELIUS!
