This year, Heritage is delighted to introduce the Rising Leaders Fellowship – a new initiative that identifies top student and youth influencers across the country and brings them to Resource Bank to learn from seasoned leaders.
At this year’s Resource Bank, 35 Rising Leaders Fellows took a dive deep into policy issues, learned communication and leadership skills, and networked with policy experts and think tank leaders.
“As a young student leader with a passion for the conservative movement, I have greatly enjoyed my time at Resource Bank,” said Ellen Wittman, a junior at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. “Through networking, policy discussions, and talking with experts, this week has equipped me with the strength and skills to help protect our founding principles for years to come.”
The 2019 Fellows were nominated by the following allied organizations: Black Conservative Movement, Claire Boothe Luce Policy Institute, Foundation for Individual Rights, The Fund for American Studies, Generation Joshua, Alexander Hamilton Society, The Gloucester Institute, Leadership Institute, Network of Enlightened Women, Young America’s Foundation, Speech First, Intercollegiate Studies Institute, Alliance Defending Freedom, Heritage’s Local University Conservatives Program, and Turning Point USA.
How can conservatives better identify talent and help young conservatives become leaders?
