Our Mission: Preparing Principled Leaders for Public Service

We seek out the best and brightest of tomorrow’s creators and writers, parents and teachers, lawmakers and pastors, entrepreneurs and philanthropists. We provide them with the intellectual, spiritual, and professional training for transformational cultural leadership. And then we give them membership in a close-knit professional fraternity of alumni to facilitate their strategic placement, continued growth, and lasting impact on American culture.

 

The Latest

The John Jay Institute offers an array of leadership development programs that are especially tailored for different audiences and phases of life. Each program provides a unique curriculum and learning environment that is ideally suited for the young emerging leader, military officer, or established working professional. All programs provide a foundation and understanding of American ideals and institutions in the context of Christian faith and the rich heritage of western civilization.

John Jay Institute alumni are in the trenches, influencing society and culture with the principled leadership we so yearn for in our government and in our communities. We have tracked their careers, conducted extensive qualitative and quantitative surveys, and watched as—time and time again—they surpass anything we could expect of them.
