Young America's Foundation's Road to Freedom Seminar: Secrets to Advancing Free Markets Over Wokeness is a unique program developed specifically for college students who want to learn how to make a compelling case for free market principles.

Government bureaucrats nationwide are advocating for greater government control of your education, healthcare, and paycheck. Many professors are using their classroom to teach students the virtues of destructive ideas like socialism and communism and discredited figures such as Karl Marx and Che Guevara. And the media today is obsessed with telling you that students want socialism in America.

Yet, Young America’s Foundation national poll of 1,000 of your peers reveals that most college-age students do not want more government intervention in their lives. They want to be able to pursue their dreams and have the freedom to make their own economic choices.

By attending the Road to Freedom Seminar, you will learn from and engage with some of the most accomplished business leaders, professors, authors, and policy experts advancing free enterprise and entrepreneurship today.

No prior knowledge on business or economics is required to attend.
