Young America’s Foundation (YAF) is excited to announce that 45thGovernor of Wisconsin Scott Walker has been elected by YAF’s board of directors as president of Young America’s Foundation, effective February 1, 2021.
Governor Walker courageously advanced freedom in a state that once was a “progressive” bastion. He championed right-to-work laws, right-to-life causes, and defended Wisconsin’s wage earners from over-reaching bureaucrats and tax collectors.
With hard-earned conservative credentials, Governor Walker’s fearlessness to do the right thing—regardless of opposition—mirrors the commitment to freedom’s principles seen in bold YAF activists across America. His dedication to rooting out fraud and corruption also reflects YAF’s work to expose the Left’s schemes to corrupt higher learning and indoctrinate—rather than educate—today’s young people.
Governor Walker has been involved in Young America’s Foundation programs throughout his time as governor, and his wife, Tonette, serves on YAF’s Reagan Ranch Board of Governors.
In addition to guiding Young America’s Foundation, Governor Walker will also oversee the management of more than 500 Young Americans for Freedom Chapters; President Reagan’s Rancho del Cielo and YAF’s Reagan Ranch Center–the largest conservative campus on the west coast; YAF’s Center for Entrepreneurship & Free Enterprise and the National Journalism Center; America’s largest campus lecture program; and an aggressive legal strategy to ensure institutions and administrators are held accountable when they violate students’ First Amendment rights.
