Young Americans for Liberty

Hillsdale College


The mission of Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) is to identify, educate, train, and mobilize youth activists committed to “winning on principle.” Our goal is to cast the leaders of tomorrow and reclaim the policies, candidates, and direction of our government.


We are the largest libertarian activist group in the country with over 900 chapters.  We promote discussion and education on a variety of political issues through both traditional as well as creative means on campus, challenging the traditional Right-Left political spectrum as well as our own beliefs through a classical liberal mindset.

Membership Requirements

There are no requirements to join and participate in the Hillsdale chapter, but to participate in regional and national events for YAL, there is a $10 a year fee.
