Brigham Young University Student Praises LI’s Youth Leadership School

October 18, 2010, Arlington, VA— Brigham Young University sophomore political science major from Lebanon, Tennessee Taylor Bambas learned much from the October 15th Leadership Institute’s Youth Leadership School in Provo, Utah.

Taylor Bambas wrote, “I just got home from an intense two-day Youth Leadership School put on by the Leadership Institute in Orem. The Leadership Institute is an awesome non-profit organization which trains young conservative political leaders. Since LI was founded by the conservative legend Morton Blackwell in 1979, they have turned out conservative political leaders left and right. If you’re conservative and at all interested in a political career you NEED to check it out. I gained more practical knowledge about political activism in 2 days at LI than I have in 3 semesters as a political science student. It is a perfect complement to my college education. I feel empowered and ready to go! Anybody need a campaign manager?!? Just kidding. Though I’m not on a political campaign currently, I’m hoping to apply the principles I’ve learned to a local advocacy group, the Girl Effect, which I’m trying to start here in Provo.”

The Leadership Institute wishes Taylor well in her studies at Brigham Young and in her future career.

The Leadership Institute’s mission is to increase the number and effectiveness of conservative activists and leaders in the public policy process. To accomplish this mission, the Institute identifies, recruits, trains, and places conservatives in government, politics, and the media.  LI has trained more than 90,000 people since its founding in 1979 and currently offers 40 program courses.
