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.
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.
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.
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.
