Programs

The Young Conservatives Coalition is an event-driven organizaiton that hosts many popular events and an educational fellowship throughout the year to fulfill its mission, including:

  • Buckley Awards (Fall) - The annual Young Conservative Leadership William F. Buckley, Jr. Awards, or the “Buckley Awards”, are given out annually to a select group of five young professional conservatives for significant achievements in advancing the conservative movement.  The awards are in honor of William F. Buckley, Jr. – the patron saint of the conservative movement who started National Review and wrote God & Man at Yale all before the age of 30.  The ceremony is usually held in November.
  • Reaganpalooza (Spring – CPAC Weekend) - Reaganpalooza is the largest annual social gathering of young professional conservatives in Washington, DC celebrating the legacy of President Ronald Reagan.  Thousands of attendees have participated over the last decade and it always occurs on the Saturday evening during the annual national CPAC conference.  The 12th Annual Reaganpalooza will take place on Saturday, March 5, 2016.
  • Job Fair (Occasional) - From time to time, YCC assists in organizing one of the largest political conservative job fairs in DC to help young professionals get jobs and internships on and off Capitol Hill with political center-right organizations.
  • Professional Development & Networking Events (Seasonal) -  YCC occasionally hosts young professional networking events, including happy hours, public policy symposia, debates, movie premieres, etc. If you or your organization are interested in having YCC help you organize an event in line with our mission, please contact us [email protected] with your proposal.
