Young Republican Clubs are both social and political in nature. Many of them sponsor various social events and networking events for members. In addition, Young Republican Clubs assist Republican political candidates and causes.
The YRNF has limited control over its state federations. A few states, including Montana and the District of Columbia, act as both a state and local chapter, while a majority of states, including Texas and California, grant strong autonomy to individual clubs. Some federations include a regional chair to handle issues of clubs in the same city or plan larger events in a particular part of the state.
State Federations elect a chair, treasurer, secretary, national committee man and national committee woman. Depending on the state, vice-chair, immediate past chair, or other directors are also elected to form the executive committee.
Voting rights at state meetings are giving to each member of the executive committee, as well as regional chairs and club presidents. The state chair, national committee man, and national committee woman serve on the national governing board and elect U.S. regional directors, a national chair, co-chair, treasurer, secretary, assistants, and others.
Most clubs are allowed to form after having a small group of active members, those who pay club dues and are under 41 years of age, and by having the club pay a fee to its state governing body on an annual basis.
Presently, the National Federation does not collect dues from either its state federations or its club members, raising money only through attendance at national events and from private donations. The YRNF is an auxiliary of the Republican Party. YRNF owns the trademark to the term "Young Republican" and the YRNF logo.
