The Center of a Living Legacy
The Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill is changing the thoughts and actions of our time by developing transformational leaders empowered to shape their life and the lives of others.
We are inspiring a generation to lead through mind and heart. To understand their rights and the rights of others. To use their voice for determined action. To live to the maximum of one’s abilities and opportunities.
This is the basis for a brighter future.

The epitome of courage,
The model for respect and dignity,
The lover of all humanity,
The believer in dreams.
