Bring Your Group to the Leadership Institute for Training

Attend a US Training

As a conservative activist, leader, or potential leader working in another country, you are welcome to attend a training conducted by the Leadership Institute in the United States. Just register, and pay the same tuition as other participants and you're ready to receive the Leadership Institute's world class training.

Please note that all participants must be able to speak and understand English, and the Leadership Institute does not provide letters of invitation or support for obtaining a U.S. entry visa.

Bring LI to Your Country

The Leadership Institute's International Division works with partner organizations around the world to provide high-quality training events for conservatives that take place outside of the United States.

When a partner organization cancels program, the Leadership Institute will refund all payments made to LI for the conduct of the program, minus any expenses for flights, accommodations and related costs that LI, in its judgment, cannot reasonably recover.

Victory in politics is the direct result of the number and effectiveness of the activists behind it.This is one of the valuable lessons I took away from the Leadership Institute's flagship training, the Youth Leadership School, last November. It became clear to me that this is true, and the Leadership Institute is the best source to better understand political technology. This drove me to pursue an internship at the Leadership Institute.Like other interns at the Leadership Institute, I had read political books, assisted campaigns, and led a campus organization. But I knew the invaluable experience gained from the Leadership Institute would take my passion for advancing liberty to the next step and make me an effective leader in the movement.The professional skills, networking, and daily understanding of the most effective political technology means wherever my career takes me, LI has set me up with the confidence, skills, and knowledge to make liberty win.

One of the most important tools for conservatives working together to advance sound principles worldwide is the International Democrat Union, or IDU. Founded in 1983 by America's Ronald Reagan, Britain's Margaret Thatcher and Germany's Helmut Kohl, the IDU is a global alliance of center-right political parties sharing a common commitment to the principles spelled out in the group's founding document, the London Declaration.While some may have felt the group's mission was accomplished with the West's victory in the Cold War and subsequent collapse of the Soviet Union, on closer examination it is clear that the need for conservatives to work together worldwide is as great as ever.
