The 6th Annual YAL National Convention brings together the best and brightest young people in the youth movement for liberty to network, share ideas, and learn how to become better leaders. Here is your opportunity to improve your skills, build your resume, and make a name for yourself in the movement. 

FEE president Lawrence Reed will speak on presidential history at 3:30 pm on Saturday, August 2. Other speakers at the convention include Ron Paul and Rand Paul.

Many past attendees became stronger campuses leaders and have gone on to work full-time for campaigns, think-tanks, and pro-liberty organizations. So, if you want to make a name for yourself or one day work full-time for freedom, then this is the must-attend event of the year.

It's no secret how this shift has benefited out social lives, including dating, and it's becoming more commonplace even in the corporate world. But it has also now come even to organizations bent on domination rather than human flourishing, as the Islamic State shows. If even destructive groups rely on this form of entrepreneurial organization, then hierarchy's time could truly be coming to an end.
