Leadership Program of the Rockies (LPR) is the premier, multi-faceted, leadership training program which focuses on the Constitution, promoting free market capitalism, and energizing an active citizenry to protect our freedoms.


The Leadership Program of the Rockies was absolutely life-changing. Before now, the founding principles and the proper role of government didn't seem to fit into my life or my conversations. I didn't understand how government over-reach was affecting my life, but I knew that something was wrong with government being the answer to all of my family's problems. After the Leadership Program of the Rockies, I not only understand how much government affects my life - as a mother, as a worker, and as a citizen - but I understand how inviting government into my home has contributed to keeping my family below or at the poverty line. I know now that the only true way to success and independence is to try and fail on my own, say no to government handouts and subsidies, and defy the government control in my life. After graduating The Leadership Program of the Rockies, I was so inspired, I decided to start a business helping people walk themselves out of poverty and become motivated to succeed and fail on their own.

I couldn't have made the transition to civic leader, professional, and political advocate that I have without the Leadership Program of the Rockies. When I applied, I was a single parent, and among other reasons, I was unsure if I could financially make the program work. I will forever be grateful to LPR for believing in me, and giving me a shot through the help of a scholarship. I am forever indebted to the Leadership Program of the Rockies for giving me the true understanding and education of why life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And most of all, I am grateful to LPR for ultimately for changing my life so that I can go forward and help others change their lives through liberty, too.

We recruit both proven and potntial leaders, ground them in the principles of a free society, and equip them with the skills they need to influence Americans' minds and actions -- today and tomorrow.

Background Statement

Formed in 2003, the Leadership Program of the Rockies is a non-profit educational, training program that focuses on free market capitalism and a thorough understanding of the importance and relevance of our nation's founding documents. We employ a deployment system we call the Proximity Impact Model and it is unique in the world of leadership development. We recruit prospective influencers to whom we can teach the critical elements of freedom. We then apply LPR's unique training and development techniques to solidify those elements in our students. Then, the alumni, with their new skills and network of highly motivated citizens, are able to educate and activate others within their individual spheres of influence.
