What you will learn

The Leadership Institute's Youth Leadership Summit is designed to educate and inspire high school and college-aged students about civic engagement and the political process. Whether you are interested in a career in politics, business, or still figuring out your future, this program will help you better understand how public policy shapes our lives.

The program is designed to educate HIGH SCHOOL and COLLEGE age students on what Conservatism is and how these principles of smaller government, a strong national defense, and traditional values have helped form and direct the United States and state government.

The program will also show you how these conservative principles shape the political and business industries. You will hear first-hand from business leaders, political experts, and elected officials what the skill-sets that are needed to enter public policy and business and why understanding politics at a young age will benefit you for decades to come.

Tuition for the program is $150 and includes the following:

  • Meals
  • Housing
  • Outdoor Adventures
  • 3 Days of Training
Register today to hear from over a dozen national experts in government, politics, and business, all brought together by the Nation's leading youth training organization, The Leadership Institute.
