About Grassroots Leadership Academy

Grassroots Leadership Academy has empowered citizens to become leaders and improve their communities through Grassroots action.

Since 2015, the Grassroots Leadership Academy is dedicated to empowering individuals to effect bottom-up change through grassroots advocacy. Our goal is to create a nationwide community of leaders who can affect bottom-up change in their community, state, or nation.

Like you, we are discouraged by politics that only divide people and roadblocks that reduce opportunity for all. That’s why we partner with thousands of like-minded individuals to find common ground on the most important issues relevant to them and elevate them into positions where they can affect real change.

As a project of Americans for Prosperity Foundation, we provide educational programs and partner with local organizations to inform the public about some of the biggest challenges facing our communities.

Why We Do It

We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all humans are created equal; that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights; that among them are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

This statement, as embodied in the Declaration of Independence, defines who we are and how we view the role of government.

Even as we understand our government has often failed to live up to this vision of the natural equality of all people, we seek to create a society in which government operates wholly within this vision.

What We Do

Grassroots Leadership Academy offers free, in-person trainings and educational programming to people across the U.S.

Our training programs educate concerned citizens about the issues facing their communities and equip them with the skills they need to remove barriers to opportunity in their communities.

We empower people to elevate themselves into positions where change is at their fingertips.
