the same.”

Partnering with Ohio schools, colleges,
homeschool co-ops, and conservative
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 2015 Summit will
be held July 14-18 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 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, a select
number of standout students are chosen for
year-round extensive mentoring, networking,
and growth opportunities. Forge will help
connect and launch these students to top-level
conservative organizations, jobs, and internships
where they can make an impact on policy and
“If ever the time should come when vain &
aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in
government, our country will stand in need of
experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.”
