Raj KannappanRaj Kannappan, Director, YAF Chapter Services

Raj is the Director for YAF Chapter Services at Young America's Foundation. He coordinates Young Americans for Freedom chapters on colleges, universities, and high schools across the country; and trains students to effectively promote principles such as limited government and individual freedom, among others.

Raj is a graduate of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York, where he served as chairman of the Cornell University conservative club and wrote for the Cornell Review, the campus conservative publication. He graduated with a BA in Government and a minor in Southeast Asian Studies.

He was involved in various Young America’s Foundation programs throughout his time at Cornell, including the 9/11: Never Forget Project, campus lectures by Foundation speakers such as Karl Rove and Marc Thiessen, and the Fall Conference at the Reagan Ranch. He also received the Phillips Foundation Ronald Reagan College Leaders Scholarship.

Raj was born in India and lived in Singapore and Thailand before immigrating to the United States with his family. His experiences growing up helped him recognize the need for strong American leadership that derives from the principles of free market economics and a strong national defense.

Raj aims to promote traditional American principles to the youth of the country so that they may have the opportunity to hear ideas that are so often ignored at our educational institutions.
