As the principal outreach organization of the Conservative Movement, the Foundation introduces thousands of American youth to these principles. We accomplish our mission by providing essential conferences, seminars, educational materials, internships, and speakers to young people across the country.
Ronald Reagan had a special partnership with Young America’s Foundation. Originally, YAF sponsored his radio addresses at Rancho del Cielo in the 1979s.Thanks to the generosity of patriotic Americans, YAF saved the crown jewel of the Conservative Movement, the Reagan Ranch, for future generations to know and love Ronald Reagan.
In 2022, Young America’s Foundation returned to a full slate of campus lectures, hosting the biggest names in the Conservative Movement across a variety of schools nationwide. With the gracious support of the Daofeng and Angela Foundation, these lectures were made available not just to the standing-room-only lecture halls on campuses, but also to an even wider audience online through YAF’s YouTube channel, YouTube.com/YAFTV.
Young America’s Foundation is continuing to work to expand its programming to younger audiences, knowing that indoctrination can begin early in a student’s education. That is why YAF launched our first-ever middle school program in 2022 to combat this indoctrination, and to introduce pre-teens to the Conservative Movement.
With the great support of the Daofeng and Angela Foundation, Young America’s Foundation successfully held three impactful high school conferences at the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, California. The conferences took place in March, June, and October, and each program had hundreds of students attend—students eager to hear conservative ideas.
“I have worked closely with Young America’s Foundation through the years and have found that their commitment to promoting balance, academic integrity, and free market values on campuses is unsurpassed.”
-Speaker Newt Gingrich
“The reason one supports Young America’s Foundation is that one supports one’s country, and one’s country is going to be run, in a matter of days now, by these kids. They are going to be making the important decisions.”
-William F. Buckley Jr.
“In the generational battles over ideas, Young America’s Foundation has been an indefatigable warrior, promoting the eternal values of individual freedom and free enterprise which have been at the core of the American experience.”
