What makes us stand out?

What is our project?

The Leadership School of the Freedom Institute is a program addressed to leaders of the future, to people who want to create an efficient state, shape Polish and European politics, develop innovative enterprises and thriving social organizations. Our graduates build their own companies and manage corporations, non-governmental institutions, engage in social, political, and local government activities.

We communicate to our listeners the values that are important to us: civic commitment, responsibility, honesty, respect, the ability to conduct dialogue, but also effective action. We talk about what effective and responsible leadership is.

If you want to join the elite group of several hundred graduates who climb the career ladder and build the strength and wealth of Poland, join us.


Igor Janke,

founder of the Leadership School, president of the Freedom Institute
