Turning Point USA (TPUSA), or Turning Point, is an American conservative nonprofit organization that advocates to identify, educate, train, and organize students to “promote the principles of freedom, free markets, and limited government.”[3][4][5][6][7] The organization was founded in 2012 by Charlie Kirk and Bill Montgomery.[5][8] TPUSA's sister organizations include Turning Point Endowment, Turning Point Action, Students for Trump, and Turning Point Faith. The group also works closely with PragerU. According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, TPUSA "is now the dominant force in campus conservatism."[3]

The organization is known for its Professor Watchlist, a site that claims to expose professors that TPUSA says "discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom".[5] According to The Chronicle of Higher Education, TPUSA has attempted to influence student government elections in an effort to "combat liberalism on college and university campuses."[9] In 2021, TPUSA started the School Board Watchlist website. It publishes the names and photos of school board members who have adopted mask mandates or anti-racist curricula.[10][11][12]

TPUSA annually hosts several conferences on various topics throughout the year, such as the Teen Student Action Summit, Young Women's Leadership Summit, Young Black Leadership Summit, Americafest, and Young Latino Leadership Summit. The organization is funded by conservative donors and foundations, including Republican Party politicians.
