The mission of the Heart of Texas Young Republicans is to educate, activate, and empower young Republican leaders, who will energetically support Republican candidates and issues and pursue leadership positions in government and the community.
The Heart of Texas Young Republicans (or HOT YRs) was founded on July 7, 2012 and was Federated by the Texas Young Republican Federation shortly after. The Texas Young Republican Federation is the premier organization for Young Republican (YR) activists between the ages of 18 and 40 that are interested in taking an active role in Republican Party politics. We are organized as a special group because, as young people, we have different opportunities and situations to incorporate into our political activity. We also encourage anyone over the age of 40 to support our group through associate membership.
The HOT YRs are a group of people who believe that if we empower our generation, we can become the most powerful resource for the Republican party. Grassroots activism is how we achieve this. Our meetings are dedicated to educating our members and members of the community about elected officials, political races, and topics of interest that will help members to grow in the political arena. In addition, we provide constant information on political candidates and the needs of the local Republican party in order to allow our members to be active in making their voice heard.
Our Young Republican Club provides the opportunity for young people who are interested in good government to:
- Learn about their governmental and political institutions
- Participate in the political process
- Become better informed and more involved citizens
Our Board of Directors and members of the Founder’s Circle are all active in their communities and in the political arena. We strive to spread this passion for serving others to all our members and friends.
