The Leadership Institute's mission is to increase the number and effectiveness of conservative activists and leaders in the public policy process.
The Institute identifies, recruits, trains, and places conservatives in government, politics, and the media to accomplish this.
Founded in 1979 by its president, Morton C. Blackwell, the Leadership Institute (LI) teaches conservatives the nuts and bolts of how to succeed in the public policy process.
The Institute strives to produce a new generation of public policy leaders unwavering in their commitment to free enterprise, limited government, strong national defense, and traditional values.
Institute graduates are equipped with practical skills and professional training to implement sound principles through effective public policy.
LI offers 47 types of training schools, workshops, seminars, and a top-notch intern program. The Institute also provides an Employment Placement Service to help place conservatives in public policy positions and in the broadcast media, at no cost to employers or job seekers.
