Event Overview

“The Road to Freedom Seminar has exceeded my expectations—the quality of the speakers, conversations with my peers, and opportunities made available by YAF staff have been incredible. I truly feel much more well-versed to discuss economic issues among my friends on campus and am inspired to advance the Conservative Movement.” - Hayley Grande, Georgetown University


If you are currently a college student or an incoming college freshman, and you want to learn the secrets to advancing the case for free enterprise over socialism, 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 college students from around the country at our Road to Freedom Seminar, scheduled for September 20 and 21, 2019, at YAF's headquarters located outside of Washington, D.C.

Over the last two years, the U.S. economy has grown faster, more jobs have been created, and wages have increased more than most experts and the media anticipated. The Washington Post, for instance, predicted in a 2016 headline that "A President Trump Could Destroy the World."

Yet, despite this economic boom, the rising popularity of leaders such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Bernie Sanders, Ilhan Omar, and Elizabeth Warren, has many Americans increasingly hearing that an economic system based on powerful government bureaucrats, redistribution of income, and more regulation is the path forward for our country.

We know you are hungry for a different perspective. You want to hear a point of view that you rarely hear on campus, in the media, or online.

You want to hear about the ideas that will lead to a brighter future for you and your fellow college students.

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.  Confirmed speakers include:

  • Steve Moore, Distinguished Visiting Fellow, Project for Economic Growth, The Heritage Foundation
  • Kristen Soltis Anderson, Pollster and Co-founder of Echelon Insights
  • Brian Brenberg, Executive Vice President and Chair of Business and Finance at The King’s College
  • Dr. Anne Rathbone Bradley, Vice President of Economi
