Young Conservatives Leadership Conference I

Last July, YCLC I drew 120 students from 17 states. They said things like, “Changed my life”…”Surpassed my expectations”…”Expanded my horizons”. Many said they’ll be back, so this years 250 spaces will fill fast. Better reserve now.

Class work will cover

What are the great issues of the coming decade?
Why is America exceptional among the nations (if it is)?
How should God and politics interact (if at all)?
What’s your role in citizenship and leadership?
Who are the thinkers and role models you can trust?

Why This Conference

Recent elections led some to say the future belongs to liberals, progressives, and the left. Centennial Institute, CCU’s think tank, believes the future belongs to freedom, faith, and family. Come to YCLC II and start preparing to prove it.

Your Week Wraps Up at Summit

As a YCLC student, your fabulous Colorado week will conclude with participation in every minute of Western Conservative Summit 2015 with it’s stellar lineup of speakers and electrifying freedom atmosphere.

You’ll Become an Armstrong Fellow

Eight amazing days at YCLC II are just the beginning of your new opportunities. Completing the class qualifies you as an Armstrong Fellow, so named in honor of former US Senator and now CCU President William Armstrong. Having bonded, the fellows stay in touch and support each other’s citizenship endeavors.
