Mississippi Leadership Academy

The Mississippi Leadership Academy is a six-part program designed to equip college students, high school seniors and young professionals with the skills and knowledge necessary to be effective change-agents in our state. Upon graduation, students will have made connections with student peers, as well as our states’ preeminent thought leaders, and will graduate better prepared to defend American principles, enter the workforce, and lead.

The program will take place in Jackson, at the office of the Mississippi Center for Public Policy, meeting once a month over a seven-month period. The program includes lessons on the basics of the lawmaking process, free markets, media management, the defense of liberty, especially on college campuses, as well as the unique challenges that Mississippi faces as a state, each taught by a speaker with expertise in the area.
