    YAF Activity Across CountryToday marks the second anniversary of the unification of Young America's Foundation and Young Americans for Freedom

    There are now YAF chapters in more than 37 states on high school and college campuses where students are working to introduce, inspire and recruit their peers to become advocates for conservatism. These chapters are in addition to existing Foundation programs and contacts on more than 2,000 campuses, and Young America's Foundation continues to work with other conservative campus groups across the country. 

    At the time of the merger, Dr. Lee Edwards, who was one of the nearly 100 young conservatives who founded Young Americans for Freedom at the home of William F. Buckley Jr. in September 1960 and founder of YAF's official publication, The New Guard,  wrote, "The Conservative Movement is always strongest when it is united and focused on the enemies of freedom, which is why I applaud enthusiastically the merger of Young Americans for Freedom and Young America's Foundation. The Left is hereby put on notice."

    Indeed, this past semester, YAF chapters received more national recognition from Fox News, the Daily Caller, Breitbart, and many other news outlets. Just some of the advances YAF has made this year include:

    • DePaul YAF fought back against  intolerance by exposing vandals who tore down their pro-life flag display
    • Grosse Pointe South High School YAF defeated attempts to stop  Rick Santorum from speaking before a full school assembly
    • Clemson University YAF stirred debate through their  second amendment banquet
    • Hillsdale YAF organized a  memorial for Lady Margaret Thatcher and hosted Michael Medved and Katie Pavlich
    • Marquette YAF hosted a  debate between Liz Cheney and Howard Dean to a capacity crowd
    • YAF at Cal State Fullerton hosted Ann McElhinney and a screening of FrackNation
    • YAF at the University of Texas-Permian Basin hosted Herman Cain

    "Starting a YAF chapter has been the best decision of my college career," writes Mississippi College YAF chair Stephan Pitts. "As soon as you contact YAF about starting a chapter, they reach out to you and bring you in to their circle of knowledge and experience.  You get invited to conferences all over the country, you get materials to help spread the conservative message on your campus, and most of all, you become a part of the Conservative Movement."  

    YAF chapters were provided with new resources to help them prevail on campus including the short film, " The Conservatives," activism initiatives, new brochures and flyers, discounts and transportation to Foundation conferences, including CPAC, and logistical and financial support to host prominent conservative speakers on campus. 

    To further improve the services provided to YAF chapters, the Foundation hosted nine chapter chairs at the Reagan Ranch last weekend. The chairs spent time discussing new campus initiatives, new outreach methods, and materials to provide to new and growing clubs. 

    Grosse Pointe North Chair, Grant Strobl said afterwards that, "the strategy session provided YAF chapter chairs an opportunity to develop ideas to help conservatism succeed on campus as well as creating new YAF swag and enjoying a memorable Humvee ride on the Reagan Ranch."  

    Michael Jones, chairman of the Young Americans for Freedom Board of Governors states, "As we mark the second anniversary of the unification between Young America's Foundation and Young Americans for Freedom, we are further encouraged by the commitment of our members to the conservative principles which have served to advance the cause of freedom."

    You can have the same success! If you want to promote conservatism, we will help you to quickly establish your club in no time. Sign up here or contact YAF Chapter Services Program Officer Kate Edwards to get started.
