 What People Are Saying About the Conference: 


“Young America’s Foundation conferences are major events for conservative students throughout the country.”

William F. Buckley, Jr.

“I learned a lot of history that has been tucked away and discredited by my liberal teachers, which helped me better understand conservatism.” 

August Nelson, San Diego, California

“Young America's Foundation has some of the largest and longest-running conferences geared toward the advancement of the conservative movement among high-school students.”

The Washington Times   

“Attending this conference allowed me to meet other like-minded people who share my conservative beliefs and values.  The conference crystallized my views into concrete arguments from my basic beliefs I held before.”

Kevin McDonough, Austin, Texas
