The Heritage Foundation
The Heritage Foundation is the ultimate resource for all conservatives. It’s mission statement is “to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.” The Heritage Foundation conducts thorough research that is applicable to many policy issues. They also provide solutions that can help create conservative policy. Heritage provides so many wonderful writings from their research experts that cover a wide range of topics that you don’t have to purchase. In fact, it is all on their site!
PragerU is one of the more popular resources for young conservatives. This organization presents ideas in five-minute videos that are completely free. They also provide a transcript for all of their videos as well as references where the facts came from in their videos. It’s a great way to focus on a specific topic and get the highlights in the form of facts and create your argument or your stance on a certain topic.
Leadership Institute is tied to Campus Reform, but they are originally known for their wonderful workshops and resources. They’re mission is to train conservative activists and leaders in the public policy process. They offer writings and manuals, as well as on demand online training. Some of these resources are free to access, while others might ask for a small price with a student discount. This is a great resource for all conservatives looking to find their role in the policy process or looking to get their feet wet in starting a grassroots movement.
