Feel out of place as a conservative at your school?

There's a place for you here.

Young America's Foundation is the leading organization for young conservatives. With more than 60 years of experience and contacts on more than 2,000 campuses, we help students like you find support, promote conservatism, and take action.

YAF has your back.

Get Informed

We want to inspire you to discover conservative ideas and give you the tools necessary to promote these ideas at your school. Our YouTube channel, YAF TV, along with our vast online resources will help you learn more about the Conservative Movement and the issues that matter most.

Find Support

You can create a visible presence for the Conservative Movement, provide a bold alternative to the leftist ideas promoted on campus, and ensure your peers are introduced to conservative ideas by getting involved with Young Americans for Freedom, our official student membership program.

Expand Freedom

Ultimately, we want to give you effective ways to make a difference on your campus. Whether you’re organizing a campus event or a lecture featuring a leading conservative, we believe the future of freedom begins with you!
