Turning Point USA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded on June 5, 2012 by Charlie Kirk. The organization’s mission is to identify, educate, train, and organize students to promote the principles of fiscal responsibility, free markets, and limited government.
With a presence on over 1,000 college campuses and high schools across the country, Turning Point USA is the largest and fastest growing youth organization in America.
National Field Program
The TPUSA model is 24/7-365 grassroots activism. Our Field Team works to organize, train, and equip student leaders on college campuses in all 50 states. Student leaders and activists work to identify young conservative activists, build and maintain effective student groups, advertise and re-brand conservative values, engage in face-to-face and peer-to-peer conversations about the pressing issues facing our country.
Turning Point USA’s National Field Program is a 75+ employee department. Most of these employees are Field Directors — professional and well-trained activists who are dedicated to organizing and mobilizing students on college campuses.
Innovative Grassroots Messaging
TPUSA works consistently to re-brand free market values. With sound bites like, “Big Government Sucks” and the incorporation of pop culture, TPUSA is able to reach new demographics and continuously expand the base. We combine culture with politics to engage young people in meaningful face-to-face conversations. Our custom materials are the best in the industry, and have been distributed on over 1,000 college campuses across the country.
Through innovative messaging and strategic outreach techniques, TPUSA is able to identify over 150,000 conservative activists in a single school year, and engage in over 500,000 face-to-face conversations with college students each semester.
To date, Turning Point USA has launched over 350 TPUSA chapters and provided over 750 like-minded student groups with resources such as activism supplies, leadership training, and field staff support. TPUSA believes that the movement is stronger when everyone works together — especially on college campuses where leftists stand united and strong.
In addition to developing a first-class campus activism program, TPUSA has written several original publications including: — Capitalism Cures — The Healthcare Games — Game of Loans — If The Founders Had Twitter — 5 Reasons Censorship Should Offend You
These publications are written specifically for students, and designed to provide readers with facts, figures, and talking points that can be used to promote and explain important issues facing country.
Turning Point USA hosts a series of student activist training conferences that are designed to train and equip our best student leaders, provide one-of-a-kind networking opportunities, and inspire and empower students to be fearless in their fight for our values. These conferences bring students from all across the country together to learn about the issues, hone their activism skills, and form life-long coalitions with other leaders in the movement.
Annual TPUSA conferences include the Young Women’s Leadership Summit, Young Latino Leadership Summit, High School Activist Conference, and Winter in West Palm Beach Activist Retreat.
Our motto is, “Late to bed, early to rise, work like hell
and organize.” We’re running out of time to turn this country around and we would be honored to have you join us.
