Young Republicans are between the ages of 22 and 40 who are interested in taking an active role in Republican Party politics. They are organized as a special group because as young people they have different opportunities and situations to incorporate into their political activity.
Young Republicans take part in GOP activities in their communities, doing everything from voter registration drives, to phone bank operations, to being campaign managers and running for public office themselves. They provide crucial support to the Republican Party, and work to ensure the future of the party in their communities and state.
Anyone between the ages of 22 and 40 and a registered voter is eligible to be a Young Republican. The best way to organize is on the local level, because the foundation of the Young Republican organization is built from the grassroots level on up.
A Young Republican ("YR") club provides the opportunity for young people who are interested in good government to:
Through the YRs, persons can develop their political knowledge and understanding of the issues of the day, and as citizens become more effective voters and campaign workers. By participating in the local club, they may assist in selecting candidates for public office and then may elect those candidates by actively helping them in their campaigns.
YRs provides a unique opportunity for young people to meet government office holders, key decision makers in society, and like-minded individuals in their own community, state, and across the nation.
