    Full-time college students and young professionals are invited to apply for a Young America's Foundation seminar on Mastering Conservative Rhetoric in the Battle of Ideas at the Hyatt Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., from June 6-9, 2010. Question

    President Ronald Reagan was a skillful debater and an artful orator and he used classic American rhetoric to convince others to embrace his policies. 

    Today, conservative leaders have struggled to effectively advocate our ideas. Alternatively, President Obama used effective oratory skills, coupled with the use of new media outlets, to entice the American public.

    This program will seek to train rising young leaders to master the use of rhetoric to effectively advance conservative principles.  Speakers include Foundation board member Wynton Hall, best-selling author and White House speech writer Marc Thiessen, communication expert Bay Buchanan, Foundation Vice President Patrick X. Coyle, and others.   

    At this Young America’s Foundation program, you will:  

    • Explore the methods and presentation styles of the Conservative Movement’s most effective communicators, including Ronald Reagan.
    • Engage in small discussion groups with fellow participants to actively hone your message
    • Learn concrete strategies to communicate conservative values to others in your community
    • Utilize new media effectively to reach new audiences with a conservative message.
    • And more!
    The cost of this exciting program is only $45 and includes overnight accommodations for three nights, meals, tuition, and conference materials.  Space is very limited. To apply, please send a resume and a brief essay on why you would like to attend this program and how it will benefit your leadership skills and activism to Roger Custer at rcuster at or call 800-USA-1776.
