The Youth Leadership School (YLS) cleared 600 students trained this year on the weekend of September 19-20, 2009, with schools running simultaneously in both Virginia and Pennsylvania.
The YLS held in Warminster, PA, just north of Valley Forge, had 28 students in attendance. The group represented a large sampling of local politics from Teenage Republicans, Young Republicans, College Republicans, three elected officials, and one gentleman interested in running for congress. The school also made head way in the local media. The conference was covered by the Intelligencer on how LI is “Training Leaders For Tomorrow’s Politics”
. After the school one student was quoted as saying, “Having attended the YLS it is not difficult to understand why LI has the reputation it has.”
Our school in Front Royal, VA had great success as well. 23 students attended many of which were homeschool students and students from Christendom College. The students were visited by State Senator. Ken Cuccinelli. Sen. Cuccinelli discussed the importance of young conservatives getting trained to become more effective for candidates or causes of their choice.
