The Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation has developed a new summer program aimed at increasing the civic engagement of student leaders— the Ronald Reagan Student Leadership Program. This five day program will develop leadership skills with a goal of accomplishing the following task: identify a problem in the community and create an extensive Leadership Action Plan which details a pathway for addressing that problem. To help them create their Leadership Action Plan, students will explore concepts of:
  • Effective Communication (The Great Communicator)
  • Optimism (It CAN Be Done)
  • Informed Decision Making (Governor and President)

This free program is available for high school students. An application is required as well as a letter of recommendation from a teacher/counselor/principal. If you are a teacher or counselor in charge of a leadership program at your school and would like to nominate a group of students, please send your contact information to and a member of our team will get back to you.

If you would like more information, please click here to access our Frequently Asked Questions page. Please note the week long camp is held onsite at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and Museum, 40 Presidential Drive, Simi Valley, CA 93065.

Please note the application period is currently closed. Students may apply for Summer 2016 beginning January 1, 2016.
