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.
