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 four 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.

Please note the application process for the 2014 Ronald Reagan Student Leadership Program is now CLOSED. Check back in the future for information on the 2015 summer sessions, including opportunities for school partnerships.
