Conducted on college campuses across the country, EFL teaches students about responsible leadership and economic analysis. Morning economics seminars introduce basic free-market concepts through simulations and discussions of current national and international issues. Outdoor leadership exercises in the afternoons challenge student teams with physical and mental problems. Among evening activities are a simulated political election and recreational and social events.
