  • Win Free Place at Young Britons Foundation Conference!

    For the past several years, Young America’s Foundation has had a special relationship with the Young Britons’ Foundation, our friends across the pond.

     

    This October - from midday on Friday, 23 October to lunchtime on Sunday, 25 October - YBF will be hosting its sixth Activist Training Conference called YBF6 at Wellington College, Berkshire in England.  The conference will be attended by 100 of the brightest, most able and hardest working young conservatives in Britain and it will be addressed by leading public policy and conservative movement figures including Daniel Hannan.

    YBF is offering up to ten American students the chance to attend YBF6 on full scholarships!

    YBF would also like to offer as many other US students the chance to attend YBF6 on payment of the discounted rate of just $250 (a discount only possible thanks to the generosity of our donors). In addition, of course, the students would need to cover their own airfares ($650, or less with student discounts) and, for the avoidance of doubt, they would need to arrive in London on Thursday, 22 October, stay 3 nights at Wellington College (Thursday, Friday and Saturday) before returning to the US in the afternoon of Sunday, 25 October.

    It may be that the students will wish to stay longer than 3 nights in Britain. To that end, YBF is able to offer an enhanced and extended programme at an additional cost of $700. This programme - running from Monday, 19 October thru the start of YBF6 at midday on Friday, 23 October would encompass the following:

    * Drinks & Private Tour of the Houses of Parliament with a Member of Parliament;

    * Private Drinks Reception and Tour of London's historic Guildhall;

    * Exclusive Tour of Windsor Castle , home of the Queen dating back to the 11th century;

    * Visit to Winston Churchill's ancestral home at Blenheim Palace and his family home at Chartwell;

    * Flight in a private capsule on the London Eye;

    * Sightseeing cruise on the River Thames;

    * Attendance at a debate at the Oxford Union Society after a tour of the City of Oxford;

    * Religious Service at St Paul's Cathedral and a walk of London's historic monuments and sights at night;

    * Transfers, Transportation & Accommodation.

    YBF considers its relationship with YAF to be integral to the success of the project to restore Thatcherism to its rightful place in political discourse in Britain. Echoing Ronald Reagan's admonition that "freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction", Lady Thatcher once said:

    "We who are living in the west today are fortunate. Freedom has been bequeathed to us. We have not had to carve it out of nothing; we have not had to pay for it with our lives. But it would be a grave mistake to think that freedom requires nothing of us. Each of us has to earn freedom anew in order to possess it. We do so not just for our own sake, but for the sake of our children, so that they may build a better future that will sustain over the world the responsibilities and blessings of freedom.”

    To apply for the scholarships, please write an essay of no more than 1000 words on the topic of “What can the United States Learn from Great Britain?” and send it by September 4 to:

    • YBF Skincare Define and Quencha0 Lisa and I agree wholeheartedly about the YBF brand. Absolutely evnthryieg I've tried is wonderful. For my top ten I'm picking Define and Quench for lips since both have helped me since I tend to ignore my lips when doing skincare. Whenever I use these YBF products I'm reminded of how great they are.
