Mission Statement
To prepare free market pro-growth leaders in policy management, technology efficiency and leadership through knowledge generation that improves free enterprise opportunities, student achievement and financial success.


Palmetto Leadership Institute (PLI) is not endowed and it does not accept government funding. It does not support political candidates or parties, or otherwise involve itself in partisan politics.

To develop young free market leaders of the future, we rely on those businesses, individuals and philanthropies to entrust us with financial resources.
