Demand is High as Registration is NOW OPEN for the 2016 Forge Leadership Summit 

Several folks have asked me why the demand for the 2016 Forge Leadership Summit is so high this year. The answer is that in one year, Forge Leadership Network developed a proven track-record of success:

Nationally-Recognized Training – The Forge Leadership Summit:
Forge combines exciting education in timeless principles and public policy with interactive workshops, training, and a full-blown legislative simulation at the Ohio Statehouse to give Summit attendees a comprehensive and dynamic leadership experience. Learn More

And, The Heritage Foundation, a gold-standard in terms of respected conservative organizations, had this to say in praise of the 2015 Forge Leadership Summit: 

“Heritage Foundation was delighted to be a sponsor of the first ever Forge Leadership Summit – and we are looking forward to being a partner for years to come. The Forge team was beyond impressive, professional, and took care of every detail to set-up a thorough multi day conference. The students who were hand-selected were of the highest caliber – and were engaged in the content, hungry to learn more. It was clear that they are not just going to be leaders of tomorrow, but are already leaders of today. See More Testimonials

Thriving Summit Graduates – The Forge Fellowship: 
A select number of Summit grads are nominated and invited to join the Forge Fellowship, an exclusive year-long formal mentoring program. These Fellows are paired with One-on-One mentors. These mentors are national leaders with tremendous character, talent, and reputation in their diverse vocations in the public square, mentors that fit our Fellows’ individual needs and vocational hopes “to a T.”

Unparalleled Internship and Job-Placement Services:
Forge is very proud of the fact that each and every one of the 2015-2016 Forge Fellows that has come to us for help in landing an elite internship or job has found one. The Staff and Board of Forge Leadership Network devote their time, energy, and networks to helping Forge Fellows find internships and jobs that will be key launch points to them accomplishing their goals and thoughtfully impacting society.

In addition to one of our Fellows applying the skills he learned at the Forge Summit to help him win a seat on his local school board, we’ve helped our students achieve their goals of landing: a top notch internship in the finance department of a presidential campaign (which has now turned into a full-time job!); a paid internship with a leading public policy firm in Ohio; internships with national conservative organizations; internships on Capitol Hill; grassroots coordinator job opportunities in Ohio; internships in media and graphic design; and an opportunity to be published in a major national publication. Other Fellows are working with their mentor to further their goals of starting small businesses, pursuing the field of law, and more.
