Last weekend students from around the country gathered at YAF headquarters outside Washington, D.C. to learn from top conservative leaders about how to reclaim their campuses from the Left. The incredible students in this picture are the FUTURE of the Conservative Movement. And now they’re equipped to make a difference in hostile territory. gb_group_photo The students traveled from as far away as Los Angeles, Georgia, Pennsylvania and many other states to spend two days training to promote conservative ideas on their campuses. gb_training1 gb_training2 gb_training3 Speakers including Matt Walsh, Crystal Wright, Steve Moore, Kate Obenshain, Robert Spencer, and more armed students with the intellectual ammunition they need to fight for their values. Attendees also completed training exercises to learn how to push back against corrupt administrators, advertise their events, and create activism initiatives to respond to bias. After the conference, James Niller of the University of Alabama remarked, “Attending the ‘Great Beginnings’ seminar was a wonderful experience for me. It allowed me to hear from some of the rising starts of the Conservative Movement, as well as to connect with many of my ‘right-minded’ peers from across our country.” If you missed this seminar, join YAF for the Fall College Retreat this November!
