Your Host

Young America’s Foundation has been around the world, offering our supporters an in-depth study of the many pressing policy questions facing countries from Australia to Hungary to Argentina and beyond. In 2022, it will be my honor, as YAF’s president, to join you on the Foundation’s latest at-sea program!

These study trips have assembled some of the most prominent leaders and heads of state in our world, including Margaret Thatcher, Lech Walesa, Jose María Aznar, Tony Abbott, Ed Meese, and dozens more.

That’s why you will not want to miss another opportunity to travel with like-minded friends, mingle with accomplished leaders, and learn about how your exceptional Young America’s Foundation educates young minds.

On our 2022 voyage, you will visit some of the North America’s most breathtaking sites as we cruise to Alaska, sailing roundtrip from Vancouver, British Columbia.

Together, from July 7 to 18, 2022, we will experience the wonder of the Alaskan wilderness, cruising the Inside Passage and Seymour Narrows enroute to Ketchikan and the Gold Rush cities of Juneau and Skagway. We will also visit the rugged paradise of Hoonah, Alaska, and take in the majestic Hubbard Glacier before stopping in Sitka, Alaska—what was Russia’s New World capital. Our journey takes us to the Canadian port city of Prince Rupert, British Columbia, before cruising the Outside Passage on our way back to Vancouver.

In addition to this fascinating cruise of the vast wilderness, described by Crystal Cruises as its “Fascinating Frontiers” voyage, we will enjoy remarks from key conservative leaders, including longtime CKE Restaurants CEO Andy Puzder, Brexit leader and author Daniel Hannan, and talk radio host Larry O’Connor, among others.

Upon our return to Vancouver, on July 18, we invite you to join us for a special dinner featuring 22nd Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who served in this role from 2006 to 2015. Young America’s Foundation will arrange a block of hotel rooms both before and after our cruise, should you wish to extend your stay in Canada. (Please see the side bar and inquire with our travel agents at 866-255-8877 for more information.)

Even though you’ll be miles away from home, you will feel most at home and welcome with our group of travelers on the luxurious Crystal Serenity.

Tonette and I look forward to being with you on this this enriching and educational voyage

Governor Scott Walker

Young America's Foundation


Governor Scott Walker was raised with a heart for public service, patriotism, and hard work. He moved to the small town of Delavan, Wisconsin, when he was in third grade. There, his father was a minister and his mother worked part time as a bookkeeper and secretary. Scott was active in school, sports, church, Scouts, and American Legion's Badger Boys State and Boys Nation programs.
In June 1993, Scott was elected to the state assembly, where he helped lead the way on welfare reform, public safety, and educational opportunities. In 2002, he was elected to the Milwaukee County executive office. In this position, Scott worked to reform the scandal-ridden county government and faithfully kept his promise to spend taxpayer money as if it were his own.
In 2008, he won re-election with nearly 60 percent of the vote. On November 2, 2010, Scott was elected the 45th Governor of Wisconsin. Inheriting a $3.6 billion budget deficit, $800 million worth of unpaid bills, and an eight percent unemployment rate, he immediately implemented reforms to renew economic revival, fiscal order, and government accountability in Wisconsin.
Scott became the only governor in American history to survive a recall election on June 5, 2012. He was re-elected in 2014 and sworn into a second term on January 5, 2015.

He serves on the boards of Students for Life Action, American Federation for Children, and the Center for State-led National Debt Solutions.

Scott and his wife, Tonette, have two adult sons.
