YAF is a non-profit, non-partisan, educational organization dedicated to promoting conservative ideas of free enterprise, limited government, traditional values, and a strong national defense. We do not affiliate with a specific political party or candidate, meaning that our sole purpose is to advocate for conservative principles. Our goal is to energize other students and encourage them to speak out. Please spread the word and help us earn votes! Follow the celebration on social media with #NDday.
Throughout the year YAF engages in numerous activism events, hosts campus speakers, and has students attend national conferences. Our students participate in Constitution Day, No More Che Day, Tax Redistribution Day, Freedom Week, and more! We have brought numerous conservatives to lecture on campus such as Businessman Steve Forbes, The Blaze's Matt Walsh, Forbes Columnist George Harbison, and Ltc. Allen West! Our students also attend national conferences throughout the year to learn about conservative ideology in places like Nashville, Washington D.C., and Dallas. Next fall we have the exclusive opportunity to send students to the Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara and the more votes we earn, the more students we will be able to send! The total number of votes we receive decides our percentage of the $1 Million. Please vote for us!
Due to the inability for the University to allocate different amounts of funding to political clubs in the interest of impartiality, we rely heavily on the support of the community, alumni, and friends.
