The Stories, Songs, Schools, and Statesmanship of a renewed 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.
They are writing powerful music worth listening to. Driving conversations on education reform nobody else is having. Passing laws through Congress nobody thought were possible. Providing a voice for international human rights issues the establishment would rather stay under wraps. Changing the terms of the debate on issue after issue. Launching publications to build a new generation of thought leaders.
The list seems endless. And the results aren’t coming from the occasional shining star—they are coming from a network of like-minded leaders, placed in strategic positions, who make each other stronger and together exert a remarkable influence on culture and policy.
Take a look around. What futures are possible?
