The Youth Leadership School really took my political career to the next level. Without the people I met and the lessons I learned in the YLS, I wouldn't be where I am today.

Taking the YLS as a college student gave me invaluable insight on how campaigns function and how I could make myself into an asset for candidates and causes I care about.

Attending the Youth Leadership School was enriching and empowering. It provided a robust foundation for me to develop my young career in conservative politics. I would highly recommend to any individual seeking to take the next step in their political career.

Ron Nehring

Director of International Training, Leadership Institute

Ron Nehring, Director of International Training at The Leadership Institute, is a Republican strategist and communications expert who served as National Spokesman in the 2016 Presidential campaign of Senator Ted Cruz.

Prior to stepping onto the national stage in 2016, Ron was chosen as the Republican nominee for Lt. Governor of California, earning the support of the California Republican Party, the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, the National Rifle Association, the California Republican Assembly, and more than 3 million voters.

Ron's parents came to America from Europe as immigrants in 1961. Ron's father traveled the world as a sailor from 1954 to 1960, and of all the countries he saw, he decided along with Ron's mother to move to the United States and raise their new family in freedom. They arrived in New York without knowing a word of English -- they learned the language by watching cartoons and commercials on television.

Ron's mother and father never had the opportunity to attend college, but they insisted he get a college education. Ron attended the State University of New York at Stony Brook and in 1992, he became the first member of his family to earn a university degree.

As a communicator and California Republican Party Chairman, Ron Nehring has made the advancement of the principles of effective and limited government, individual liberty and freedom his life's work. These are the principles that produce prosperity wherever they are tried around the world.

As the new Chairman of the California Republican Party, Nehring inherited an organization millions of dollars in debt and ensured that upon leaving office all bills were paid, there was no debt, and a substantial cash reserve in the bank. Financial controls were improved and a professional staff put in place.

He served on the California Board of Forestry and Fire Protection in 2005 in the aftermath of the Cedar Fire, the largest and most destructive wildfire in American history. During his tenure, Ron participated in the development of new regulations to improve management of lands and property to reduce wildfire threats to families and communities.

He served as a Trustee for the Grossmont Union High School District in San Diego County – a large district with 11 high schools, 24,000 students at the time and a budget in excess of $170 million. He chaired the Audit Committee and was a strong proponent of expanding charter schools.

To promote the principles of democracy and liberty around the world, he has served as a volunteer expert lecturer and trainer in the areas of governance and communications for government officials and candidates in regions including Bosnia, Serbia, Morocco, Egypt, Guatemala, and Iraq. He has served as an international election observer in Kenya and Honduras.
