Virginia Beach Young Republicans

The Virginia Beach Young Republicans (VBYR) are a group of involved citizens ages 18-40 who enjoy politics, networking, and socializing.  

We, the Virginia Beach Young Republicans, pride ourselves in not carrying on "politics as usual." Our primary mission is to hold all elected officials accountable to the Constitution, and all elected Republican officials to the principles written within the Republican Creed of Virginia.

We Believe:

  • That the free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice,

(What does free enterprise mean?)

  • That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume their responsibilities as citizens in a free society,

(What are the rights and responsibilities of a citizen in a free society?)

  • That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government.

Spending more than one's income and not repaying the debt is fiscally irresponsible and illustrates the lack of budgetary restraint.

  • That the Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing Constitutional limitations,

 (Constitutional Limitations | Individual Liberty )

  • That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense.

The 2nd Amendment defense does not equate to "national offense" or "preemptive strikes".

We support our local, state and national GOP candidates and also provide you with a great way to network and socialize with other young people and professionals.

We will supply educational materials, mentors, guides, encouragement, and a fertile environment for young inspiring candidates to mature into statesmen/stateswomen for the future of the party and the country.

In addition to our normal party building activities, we have occasional social meetings. The VBYR's goal is to help give younger generations a representation and a voice in politics! We strive to make politics fun, more diverse, and help attract more young individuals to our local party who also believe in our principles.
