HobbyLobbyYoung America’s Foundation is excited to announce the
Firing Up Freedom Tour, a tremendous opportunity
for Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapters to kick-start their Fall 2014 push to promote the ideas of individual
freedom and limited government!

The tour will feature Kate Obenshain, author of
“Divider-in-Chief: The Fraud of Hope and Change” and an alumna of
Young America’s Foundation, who will visit college and university YAF chapters early in the
fall semester to deliver a lecture that will inspire
students to become bold activists. Kate is a
motivational speaker who has addressed students on topics such as
education, free speech, and political correctness. She will also
promote on social media throughout the academic year the YAF
chapters’ activism so that they can garner additional publicity for
their achievements.

As part of the tour, a Young America’s Foundation staff member
will join each YAF chapter following Kate’s lecture to provide
hands-on guidance on campus activism. This
guidance may involve assisting the chapter with tabling on campus,
distributing or posting flyers, and writing op-eds, among other

Additionally, Young America’s Foundation is fully
funding this tour! Because this is
an investment in our YAF chapters, we are opening
this opportunity up for competition.

would help the chapter grow and why the students believe that their
chapter could organize a successful campus lecture. The following

  • Any experience that the chapter has with organizing
    activities or events;
  • The strategy that the chapter would employ to advertise
    Kate’s lecture on campus;

    expected attendance;
  • A tentative schedule for the event; and
