David Blair is currently the Director of the Youth Leadership School (YLS), nicknamed the "boot camp of politics", at the Leadership Institute. He travels the country training principled conservatives how to win for the candidate or cause of their choice.

David was formerly the National Director of Youth for Trump, the official youth movement of President Donald J. Trump, Youth Outreach Coordinator for the Office of Nationwide Engagement on the Presidential Transition Team, and a Presidential appointee in the Trump administration.

David spent his time on the Trump campaign working with thousands of students and young people from all over the United States to organize a mass-based youth effort for our President. Prior to his role on the campaign David occupied his current position as the Leadership Institute's Director of the Youth Leadership School. David left the YLS to join the campaign in Trump Tower.

Prior to taking on the role of director, David was a Regional Field Coordinator (RFC) for the West Coast, and later, the Mid-West region of the United States.

Before his work as an RFC, David was a Leadership Institute Field Representative in Michigan where he fought against liberal bias and abuse, full-time, on college campuses. David identified over seventeen hundred conservative students during his time in Michigan and organized dozens of successful recruitment and activism events.

An alumnus of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, David co-founded SIUC Young Americans for Liberty chapter which started a dialogue of liberty that is still present on that campus today.
