BLP-influenced programs as well as partnerships and collaborative relationships with universities and other organizations include those listed here.
- Michigan Political Leadership Program (MPLP), Institute for Public Policy and Social Research, College of Social Science, Michigan State University: Successfully operating with over 650 graduates since 1992, the MPLP is a bipartisan program that identifies individuals from across the state of Michigan committed to community service and brings them together to engage in a public policy and leadership curriculum. MPLP was created by the President and Founder of the BLP, Bob Mitchell. Over 60% have become elected to various local and state offices. (http://ippsr.msu.edu)
- Political Leadership Academy, Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, George Mason University: The President and Founder of the BLP Bob Mitchell initiated and created the PLA in partnership with the Carter School Dean Alp Ozerdem. With input from BLP Advisors and the BLP Board, the PLA began in 2020 equipping participants with meaningful conflict analysis and resolution ideas, skills, and experience to pursue more effective and peaceful political relationships, processes, and governance. Refer to PLA “Flagship Fellowship 2023”. (https://pla.carterschool.gmu.edu.)
- John Lewis Leadership Program, John Lewis High School, Fairfax County Public Schools: In response to the request of a Fairfax County School Board member, the BLP recruited and managed a community working group to suggest ideas for the creation of the John Lewis Leadership Program after the name of the school was changed from the Robert E. Lee High School to the John R. Lewis High School in 2020. 79 people signed up to serve on the Working Group that consisted of current and former elected officials, teachers, students, authors, producers, and experts in fields of leadership and civic engagement. Over the course of several months the Working Group developed and submitted for consideration by the School Board and Administration a number of ideas for curriculum resources and experiential learning activities. With School Board approval, the program began to be implemented in the Fall of 2022. The program develops a pipeline of young people with skills and appreciation for public service and helps expose high school students to leadership, advocacy, service and justice. A major experiential learning experience for the students in 2023 was a John Lewis Civil Rights Legacy Trip that the BLP helped support and make possible for the students.
