Joshua Leadership Institute (JLI) Trains 60 Leaders for Life!
Governor Jindal Speaks to Students on Planting Seeds for Life
"The seeds you are planting in Louisiana today will make Louisiana even more pro-life tomorrow."
Governor Bobby Jindal shared these and other inspirational words yesterday with our 60 high school and college students that are together in Baton Rouge at the max-capacity 2013 Joshua Leadership Institute.
The Institute, which began on Sunday and concludes Thursday, will train students in pro-life persuasion/apologetics, medical ethics issues such as euthanasia, stem cell research, activism outreach on campus, and much more. The highlight for many of the students was a chance to put their knowledge to practice when they went to LSU's Free Speech Alley to dialogue with strangers on abortion.
The Joshua Leadership Institute, co-sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and Louisiana Right to Life, is a first-class training program open to all youth right here in Louisiana. Many thanks to our great chaperones and leaders, including Vince Whittington of the Knights of Columbus, and our staff leaders Cody Reed and Mary Nadeau.
See below for a few quotes from three of our awesome students!

I had never been to a college campus to survey and talk to people. I was nervous at first, but I realized that I had no
reason to be. Once I got over the initial anxiety, everything went smoothly. I am so happy that I got to speak with these people about the truth behind
