The Young Republicans (YRs) are the oldest political youth organization in the United States. Important to the growth of the Republican Party, the YRs reach out to registered Republicans, 18 to 40 years of age, and provide them with better political knowledge and understanding of current issues.

The NCFYR is an official chartered state of the Young Republican National Federation (YRNF), which has been the official auxiliary of the Republican Party for over 80 years.
