Pelican Leadership Academy

Applications are now open! The Pelican Leadership Academy is committed to training and equipping future Louisiana leaders who want to see a free and flourishing Louisiana. This experience is designed to inform, educate, and connect emerging and experienced leaders in Louisiana to some of our state’s biggest assets and most daunting challenges.
Participants—representing a range of industries and ages in both the private and public sectors—will graduate from the program with the tools necessary to grow as thought leaders in their respective professions.
The program will be facilitated in Baton Rouge, one full day a month over a 9-month period of time with a summer break. We will cover leadership and ethics training, free market public policy training, understanding of the legislative process, and demystifying the campaign process. Graduates will leave the program as part of a network of peers connected to the people, organizations, and service opportunities that will make meaningful and lasting changes for the state of Louisiana. Register Here
