Decades ago, the Youth Leadership School literally launched my political career. I'm so thankful for Morton Blackwell and The Leadership Institute.

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.

The YLS is a vital training for anyone in conservative politics. It helped me grow the movement on my campus and get a Youth Director position with a campaign.
