SANTA BARBARA, CA– A record number of high school students will gather in downtown Santa Barbara for Young America’s Foundation’s June High School Conference at the Reagan Ranch from June 22 to June 24. Young conservatives from around the country will engage with leading conservatives and be inspired by President Reagan’s principles.

Like all of Young America’s Foundation’s programs, this conference will bring students face-to-face with conservative all-stars, including Kate Obenshain, Victor Davis Hanson, Dr. Derryck Green, Robert Spencer, Rachel Campos-Duffy, and Dr. Burt Folsom.

The weekend-long conference will culminate with a tour of President Reagan’s beloved mountaintop ranch home, Rancho del Cielo. Saved in 1998 and preserved ever since by Young America’s Foundation, the Reagan Ranch provides students with the opportunity to walk in President Reagan’s footsteps, a rite of passage for every young conservative.

“Young Americans, increasingly high school students, want to learn more about freedom’s principles and deepen their understanding of what it means to be a conservative,” noted Ron Robinson, president of Young America’s Foundation. “Expanding our June High School Conference at the Reagan Ranch to allow a record-breaking number of students to attend proves that the timeless principles of good government and individual freedom are in demand, and this landmark conference allows YAF to lead the way in introducing young people to the Conservative Movement.”
