The vision of Forge is to train, mentor, and launch the next generation of conservative leaders in the public square. We equip 16-24 year-olds as they desire to make a principled and effective impact on policy and culture in their future vocations. Our board shares this vision and boasts phenomenal experience, having impacted the public square in a litany of meaningful ways.

The collective experience of the Forge Board of Advisors boasts law and seminary degrees and undergraduate honors and distinctions from Hillsdale College and other fine institutions. We have writers, pastors, editors, attorneys, small-business owners and entrepreneurs, board members of civic organizations, business coaches and consultants, public policy and think tank experts, conservative movement leaders, former staffers to the White House and Capitol Hill, university professors, and innovative educators transforming secondary education.
