Jamie Aiken: "Great Moments in Ballet!"
Jamie is the Founder and President of The Refuge, Inc. - a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The Refuge's hallmark program Project American Life serves thousands of children each year (Grades 5 through 8). P.A.L. has become a national model for inculcating virtuous citizenship -- appreciation for the overflowing blessings of America, and the inherrent responsibilities therein. Hopefully, the P.A.L. experience will soon be available nationwide. For more information, please visit the website: www.foundingprinciples.com or www.projectamericanlife.com
