Direct Line w/Kyle Ferrebee, Executive Director of Young Americans for Freedom
June 16, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:15 pmFREE
Kyle Ferrebee is the Executive Director of Young Americans for Freedom.
Kyle directly oversees the development of Young America’s Foundation’s chapter affiliate, Young Americans for Freedom. He works with hundreds of chapters on high schools and colleges campuses nationwide to help chapters advance conservative principles amongst their peers and within their community.
He graduated Magna Cum Laude with university honors from Wingate University where he studied business management and legal studies. During his time at Wingate, he founded the school’s YAF chapter.
As YAF chairman, Kyle hosted multiple campus speakers and events and grew his newly founded chapter despite hostilities from administrative officials and fellow students.
Kyle’s YAF chapter received national attention when university officials decided to pull funding for the conservative organization’s lecture featuring author Nonie Darwsh. This opened the door for the chapter to play a significant role in influencing many of the university’s student organization and campus lecture policies.
After Black Lives Matter protests turned into deadly anti-police riots in the neighboring city of Charlotte, Kyle and his YAF chapter quickly organized a “Back the Blue” campaign to combat the growing anti-police sentiment at Wingate. Hundreds of students joined alongside Wingate University YAF in support of local law enforcement officers.
Kyle also organized the 9/11: Never Forget Project, Socialism Awareness Week, Freedom Week, and No More Che Day among many other projects.
Prior to joining the Young America’s Foundation program team, Kyle served as a 2016 William and Bernice Grewcock Intern Scholar at YAF’s national headquarters, and in the Heritage Foundation’s Center for International Trade and Economics as part of their Young Leaders Program.
Kyle is proud to help young conservatives advance conservatism on high school and college campuses nationwide.
