Forge Leadership Network’s mission is to identify the best and brightest conservatives of the next generation and to train, mentor, and connect them to become future leaders in the public square.

Forge is an educational nonprofit organization that equips individuals ages 16-24 to engage culture by teaching them the principles, policy, process, and practical skills necessary to impact government and society.

Partnering with colleges, schools, homeschool co-ops, and organizations, Forge identifies and recruits elite students to a 4.5-day intensive program: the Forge Leadership Summit.

At the Forge Leadership Summit, students are immersed in a comprehensive, connected leadership experience. The 2017 Summit will be held July 4-8, 2017 at Ohio Christian University and features training at the Ohio Capitol. Students are taught timeless principles, public policy, and practical skills while participating in a full simulation of the legislative process. Our signature workshop features the expertise of experienced legislators and boasts an ambitious speaking schedule of state and national leaders.

After the Forge Leadership Summit (“Forge 101”), a select number of standout students are chosen for year-round extensive mentoring, networking, and growth opportunities. This includes exclusive training in D.C. (Forge 201) and Israel (Forge 301). In the Forge Mentoring Academy, Forge connects and launches these students to top-level organizations, jobs, and internships where they can make an impact on policy and culture.

Your chance at these amazing opportunities begins by applying to the 2017 Forge Leadership Summit – July 4-8, 2017.
