Leadership Training Facility
National Medal of Honor Center for Leadership Training Facility
The National Medal of Honor Center for Leadership will be a destination unlike any other in the nation, providing individuals with a transformative experience.
Every influential movement needs a home, and we proudly establish ours in a place dedicated to patriotism. It’s not just any place; it’s one of the world’s most renowned travel destinations.
We are building a $75 million, 50,000 square-foot conference center and immersive guest experience taking root at Patriots Point in Mount Pleasant, SC. It’s not merely a fun experience; it’s an awe-inspiring transformation that transcends the very essence of the Medal of Honor.
But this is more than just a building; it’s part of an effort to revitalize America through a nationwide leadership development program based on Medal of Honor values. We aim to be the go-to source for values-based leadership education and a driving force behind a national conversation on this topic.
This ambitious project is led by a dedicated team of veterans and citizens who are passionate about paving the way for future leaders. They believe in preserving the stories of our country’s greatest heroes and passing on their legacy.
Meet Your Moment Experience
The National Medal of Honor Center for Leadership will be a curated visitor experience designed with immersive, multimedia exhibits to emphasize what unites us as Americans; to promote Medal of Honor values; to provide context to understand the recipient’s stories; and to inspire visitors to positively shape their futures.
With artifacts, galleries, immersive demonstrations, and experiential exhibits, guests will embark on an exhilarating journey that compels them to become leaders in their own lives by:
- Hearing the inspiring stories of regular people facing extraordinary moments and understanding why their values made a difference.
- Gaining a deeper understanding of citizenship, overcoming challenges, and making crucial decisions when it matters most. Exploring ethical decision-making and applying Medal of Honor values in various aspects of life.
- Honoring Medal of Honor heroes who displayed extraordinary valor in military action, offering insights into your own leadership values
This conference center will be a portal for character development, leadership symposiums, certification programs, retreats, and immersive multimedia exhibits.
This curriculum aims to help learners prepare to meet their own moments by putting them in interactive scenarios and situations that ask them to exercise these values in the process of making tough decisions. We all face choices big and small that ultimately define who we are and help define the nature of this great country.
