We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 301 E. Pine St., 14th floor, Orlando, FL. Although the business portion of the meeting begins at 630pm sharp, the doors open at 6pm or casual chat and drinks.
The Orange County Young Republicans of Florida are one of the largest YR organizations in the state of Florida with a history that spans decades of activism in the Central Florida area. Young Republicans are people between the ages of 18 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 nationwide.
Anyone between the ages of 18 and 40 is eligible to be a Young Republican. The best way to organize is on the local level, because the foundation of the Young Republicans is built from the grassroots level on up. Specifically, our mission is to provide an opportunity for young people who are interested in good government to:
- Learn about their governmental and political institutions;
- Participate in the political process;
- Perpetuate the two-party system on which our political system is built; and
- Become better informed and more involved citizens
Through the YR’s, they 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.
YR’s provides a unique opportunity for an interested young Republican to meet with the decision makers in society and to meet like-minded individuals in their own community and across the nation.
