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 2025, 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 the world, including Margaret Thatcher, Stephen Harper, Lech Walesa, José 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 2025 voyage, you will visit some of the world’s most breathtaking sites as we sail from New York to Montreal aboard the Regent Seven Seas Splendor. This cruise—described by Regent as a “Gilded New England” voyage—begins in New York.

Embarking in New York, we will continue our 11-night journey with stops in Newport and Bar Harbor. From there, we sail to Canada, visiting St. John, Halifax, and Sydney, Nova Scotia. Our journey then takes us to Saguenay, and Quebec City, before concluding in Montreal, Quebec. 

Before setting sail, we invite you to join us for a special pre-cruise stay and opening reception in New York City. (Please inquire for pre-cruise details.) 

In addition to this fascinating journey, we will enjoy remarks from key conservative leaders, including former CEO of CKE Restuarants, Andy Puzder. 

The luxurious, all-suite Regent Seven Seas Splendor will be your home away from home as you join like-minded friends for this incredible experience. 

This will truly be a journey of a lifetime.

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

Young America's Foundation

The Occupy Movement didn't start on Wall Street. It started in Madison, Wisconsin, when 100,000 protestors descended onto the grounds of the State Capitol soon after Scott Walker took office as Governor. Their goal was to intimidate him and his allies, but he did not back down. He was unintimidated.

Scott's reforms took power from the hands of big government special interests and put it firmly into the hands of the hard-working people of Wisconsin and those that they elect to run their local governments. Those reforms, known as Act 10, have saved taxpayers more than $16 billion. During Governor Walker's tenure, Wisconsin enacted more common-sense conservative reforms than any state in the nation. They targeted him, and he won, becoming the first Governor in American history to win a recall election.

Now, Scott serves as president of Young America's Foundation, which trains the next generation of leaders in the fight for freedom. YAF conducts programs at the Reagan Ranch, Ronald Reagan Boyhood Home, its national headquarters in northern Virginia, Washington, D.C., and regional sites nationwide. YAF also hosts more conservative campus lectures than any other organization and has a digital presence with more than one billion views.

Scott has been married to Tonette for more than 30 years. They live on Pewaukee Lake in Wisconsin while also spending time in Virginia and California. Scott and Tonette have two adult children.

Born the son of a pastor and a part-time bookkeeper and raised in a small town, Scott understands the value of hard work and community. He is a proud Eagle Scout and an alum of the American Legion's Badger Boys State and Boys Nations programs. When he's not working, Scott can be found riding on his Harley Davidson Road King, on their pontoon boat out on the lake, or cheering on the Packers or one of Wisconsin's other sports teams. Most importantly, he is a follower of Christ.
