“I like greeting and touring people, young and old…I like to inform them of the struggle for freedom that has taken place over hundreds of years. Furthermore, being able to share the stories of brave people who have assisted in the struggle, and to let them know that the struggles for freedom continue today keeps me inspired to champion the mission."


We invite you to become a volunteer and modern-day freedom conductor. Your skills and talents will help us create fulfilling and meaningful experiences.
