Emerging Leaders Initiative
The Emerging Leaders Initiative is targeting high school and college campuses to identify, train, and empower the next generation of conservative leaders.
Emerging Leaders Academy
Now Open: Summer 2022 and Winter 2022.
The Emerging Leaders Academy is an intense 12-week training and mentorship program for high school and college students. After students attend an initial training course on leadership, project management, communications, and issue-advocacy, they are matched with an organization for an internship. Concurrent with their internships, students will meet weekly with a mentor to plan and execute an issue advocacy project in their community. Students that graduate from the Emerging Leaders Academy receive a certificate of completion, a recommendation letter from their internship, and are eligible for priority placement through our job placement center.
Job Placement Resource Center
The Emerging Leaders Initiative maintains a resume bank for conservative students that are interested in paid jobs locally and nationally. If you are interested in being considered for a paid job in your area, let us know by signing up!
Club Support and Speaking Events
Most schools are openly hostile to conservative groups holding events or inviting speakers on campus. The Emerging Leaders Initiative will defend the rights of students to form clubs and host events. We help students organize on campus by providing financial support for student groups and events featuring common-sense speakers on a wide-range of topics.
Through a series of mixers, meet-ups, pizza parties, beach days, and BBQs, the Emerging Leaders Initiative brings together young leaders from a number of schools in a region for fun networking opportunities.
Support a Student
The Emerging Leaders Initiative is a free program to high school and college students – but our ability to sponsor these students is entirely dependent on financial support from contributors like you. If you are interested in supporting one or more students, please contribute today!
The Emerging Leaders Initiative is a program for conservative-minded high school and college students in San Diego County where we help provide our next generation of conservative leaders the tools they need to make a positive impact in their communities.
