WASHINGTON—Project 2025, a coalition of more than 80 partners led by The Heritage Foundation to prepare for the next conservative presidential administration, released six additional training videos today via its Presidential Administration Academy. The Presidential Administration Academy is a unique educational and skill-building program that equips conservatives with the skills necessary to be effective policy professionals in the next conservative administration.
Hugh Fike, director of government relations at the Conservative Partnership Institute and Presidential Administration Academy instructor with vast congressional and White House experience, commented on the expansion of the program:
“The Presidential Administration Academy is a next-level program that sufficiently equips those who want to serve in the next administration with the knowledge and expertise they need to be successful. This certificate program will help viewers better understand how to best work across the agencies and different branches of government to effectively execute the president’s agenda. Through the program, the conservative movement will be more prepared than ever before to take power on Day One.”
The six new videos are part of a larger certificate program called “Conservative Governance: Advancing Policy” and bring the total number of training videos on the platform to 26. The newly released videos are “Executive Order Drafting and Implementation,” “Advancing the President’s Agenda as a Political Executive,” “How to Get Your Policy Through the Agency,” “Building Winning Coalitions to Advance Policy,” “Congressional Relations: How to Work with Members,” and “Best Practices in Social Media to Advance Policy.”
Throughout this program, both former and prospective political appointees will develop a comprehensive understanding of how to advance the president’s agenda. This includes learning about executive order drafting and implementation, how to leverage federal grants and contracts, optimizing the functioning of cabinet government, exploring best practices for social media, and more.
Daniel Huff, senior advisor for Project 2025 and an instructor in one of the newly released videos, commented on the Presidential Administration Academy:
“The Left’s long march through America’s cultural institutions means the next conservative administration has not a moment to lose. I was in Washington, D.C., for years and still gleaned important practical tips from these courses. As far as I am concerned, if you can’t make the time to watch them, you’re not serious about saving America.”
Project 2025 is made up of a broad coalition of conservative organizations that have come together to ensure a successful administration begins in January 2025. The project builds on four pillars that will collectively pave the way for an effective conservative administration: a policy agenda, personnel, training, and a 180-day playbook. The Heritage Foundation is joined by more than 80 partner organizations in this effort to ensure that the transition team is ready on Day One.
