Event Overview

If you are currently a college student or an incoming college freshman, and you want the tools to effectively champion the free market economic system and respond to attacks against Americans who have achieved financial success through hard work, entrepreneurial spirit, and risk, Young America’s Foundation’s Road to Freedom Seminar is for you.

Young America’s Foundation’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Free Enterprise invites you to join your peers from around the country at our Road to Freedom Seminar scheduled for July 20 and 21, 2018, at the Foundation’s Headquarters located outside of Washington, D.C.

Many of America’s colleges and universities are increasingly teaching that a system of collectivism, government intervention, and redistribution is the path forward for our country. Yet, as Ronald Reagan once told a YAF audience, “Profit, property, and freedom are inseparable, you can’t have any one of them without the other two.”

We know you are hungry for a different perspective. You want to hear a point of view that advances the power of the individual to build thriving businesses, less burdensome regulation, freedom from controlling government bureaucrats, and ultimately, a brighter future for you and their peers.

Young America’s Foundation is hosting this seminar to provide just this opportunity.

Students who attend this program will learn from, and engage with, some of the most exciting business leaders, professors, authors, and policy experts advancing free enterprise, entrepreneurship, and innovation today. Speakers include:

  • Stephen Moore, Distinguished Visiting Fellow at The Heritage Foundation
  • Kristen Waggoner, Senior Vice President at Alliance Defending Freedom
  • Kyle Reyes, President and CEO of Silent Partner Marketing and National Spokesman of Law Enforcement Today
  • Anne Rathbone Bradley, Vice President of Economic Initiatives at the Institute for Faith, Work & Economics 
  • Brian Brenberg, Executive Vice President and Chair of Business and Finance at The King’s College
  • Ana Quintana, Policy Analyst at The Heritage Foundation
  • Jay Richards, Research Assistant Professor at Catholic University of America
  • Martha Boneta, Executive Vice President of Citizens for the Republic and family farmer
  • Jared Meyer, Senior Fellow at the Foundation for Government Accountability
