YAL’s Liberty Candidate Academy is open to all those who are serious about running for office on the principles of Liberty, current YAL members, alumni, and those who support the principles of liberty regardless of age or political party. Whether you are a candidate for public office, a campaign volunteer, staffer, consultant, or an activist in your state interested in supporting candidates — this training will equip you to make maximum impact during the election season.

Our day-long training will include modules on fundraising, list building, door knocking, mail, texting, and phones. We will cover how to craft your message and managing your data with a targeted universe. You will walk out of the training in the evening with a very clear idea about what you need to do to win your race. If you are on the fence about running, you will leave the school knowing exactly what you are getting into and will be able to make a final decision on whether you are up to the task. This training is not for philosophers, debaters, or non-serious people. Establishment hacks and far-left socialists need not apply. This course is designed for freedom-loving patriots who want to take their country back for liberty.

You must register below to attend the academy.
