LEAD Summer Program

Our LEAD Summer Program is a life-transforming week featuring authentic leadership simulations in the legislative, media, judicial, campaign and business fields under the direction of Christian professionals in each field.

Ambassador League

A one‐year practicum designed to move young people toward service, community awareness and deepen their knowledge of God’s word. Students who complete this course find themselves prepared to communicate their values in future academic and professional settings.

Onsite Programs

The Onsite Program is a two-day abbreviated version of the week-long SSI summer experience for schools, home school groups and youth groups throughout Michigan and beyond.

The Mission of the Student Statesmanship Institute


SSI is a unique hands-on Biblical worldview and leadership program for high school students featuring legislative, media, business, campaign and judicial tracks. The real-world professional career simulations and dynamic faith-filled environment combine to develop character, instill purpose and equip young people with highly relevant life-skills. SSI is a fun and exciting learning experience that prepares teenagers for every aspect of their future.

SSI has developed programs for high school students to experience real-world leadership simulation training in law, public policy, legislative affairs, business and journalism grounded in Biblically based, traditional values. The programs include the LEAD Summer Program, the Onsite Program, and the Ambassador League.
