The Restoration Generation is the group of young scholars ages 18-35 who teach, organize events, and actively defend principles of the Constitution.

What We Believe

“Even this nation will be on the very verge of crumbling to pieces and tumbling to the ground, and when the Constitution is upon the brink of ruin, this people will be the staff upon which the nation shall lean, and they shall bear the Constitution away from the very verge of destruction” (Joseph Smith)

Although the Restoration Generation and the 5 non-profits we engage in are multi-denominational, our organizations strive to align our core beliefs with the united voice of the First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Click to learn more about our core beliefs!

What is the Restoration Generation?

The Restoration Generation is a student engagement project of the Columbus Center for Constitutional Studies.

As members of the Restoration Generation, we support and engage in the five educational non-profits directed by Dr. Glenn J. Kimber.
