Training Leaders to Transform America 

The people of the United States face an ever-expanding government exceeding the original bounds of the Constitution. Our nation crumbles under widespread tyranny, burdensome regulation, and a swelling national debt.
We need students who aspire to be statesmen and leaders in this struggle for self-governance. If you are a student or a recent graduate, step up, sign your name among the leaders of American patriots, and apply to be a part of the Emerging Leaders Program.

Holistic Development

You will undergo a discussion-based leadership course centered on Servant Leadership by Dave Kuhnert, among other readings. Led by the Intern Coordinator Jackson Allen and COS President Mark Meckler, you will learn how to integrate its teachings into your everyday life through weekly socratic webinars and conversations with national team members and high-profile supporters of our movement.

You will receive hands-on feedback and direction in order to improve your professional portfolio, including items such as your resume and cover letter. Part of your training will include a series of mock interviews from our national team members who have years of experience to equip you for a budding career.

Our program contains an all-expenses paid trip to our nation’s capital to dive into our history, enjoy one another’s company, meet influential leaders in politics, and participate in private classes on statesmanship, self-governance, rhetoric, and first principles. This educational opportunity will continue through the latter half of the internship with a series of case studies of numerous American statesmen. Ultimately, we hope to form a long-lasting relationship with you. While we pursue that friendship, we will endeavor to educate and serve you so you can go out and do the same for others.
