In 2022, our Club traveled to Washington D.C. with 32 Janesville middle school students thanks to scholarships made possible by a grant from Herb Kohl Philanthropies. We had hopes of continuing our Washington DC trip this summer, however Herb Kohl Philanthropies has changed their process. It is our understanding at this time that we will be eligible to apply for the grant for summer of 2024. We will update this page as we learn more about this new process. 

Future Travel Dates
