What students say about chapters

At the educational institutions where we’re supposed to be able to freely think, conservative ideas are often shut down. By being a part of or starting a YAF Chapter, you can openly express your beliefs and take actual action to propel your principles further in an array of creative and effective efforts. By doing so, you can help future generations avoid the injust persecution you have faced for being a free-thinker.

The University of Iowa

Through YAF, I have been able to bring Conservative speakers and ideas to my campus to hundreds of students who may have never heard a Conservative viewpoint.

The Ohio State University

I wanted to start a YAF Chapter at my high school, because I noticed that the student body had very minimal exposure to conservatism. The vast majority of my school thinks negatively about conservatives...and I wanted to change that.
