Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) is the largest, most active, and fastest-growing pro-liberty organization on America’s college campuses. With hundreds of chapters and thousands of youth activists nationwide, our mission is to identify, educate, train, and mobilize youth activists to make liberty win.

This is not a new beginning but a continuation of a youth movement already brewing in this country. Our objective is to facilitate its success. Please take a moment to watch this video and use the links in the right column of this page to learn more about YAL.

Please also help support our efforts at our online donation page. A contribution of $100, $50, or $25 will go a long way towards continuing a network of liberty-minded students.

Thanks in advance for your contribution.

Jeffrey Tucker’s Endorsement

It’s the most uncompromising and principled student organization in the country.”

Larry Reed’s Endorsement

“Among the ranks of Young Americans for Liberty today are men and women who will make history tomorrow. They will be in the vanguard to restore a free and civil society that is united by personal character and a government limited to protecting peace and freedom”

Bill Frezza’s Endorsement

“Rescuing our future requires arming young people with the ideas they will need to clean up the messes we Baby Boomers left them. Young Americans for Liberty is best equipped for the job.”
