Mission: Students For Liberty's mission is to provide a unified, student-driven forum of support for students and student organizations dedicated to liberty.
Geographic areas served: On hundreds of College and University Campuses in the US, and around the globe.
Programs: Events - SFL ran 98 conferences for 20,000 attendees around the world to learn more about the principles of liberty. For an average of less than $134 per person, SFL was able to provide a life-changing experience for young people to hear from prominent speakers about important public policy issues today, debate political philosophies, discuss best practices for student organizing, and become excited about build a freer future.
Leadership training - SFL trained 468 individuals to be effective leaders of liberty in their communities. After a rigorous selection process, SFL provided each of these students with 1-3 months worth of training in management, organizing, and advocacy techniques. These leaders then took on the responsibility for starting new pro-liberty student groups around the world, organizing events, and educating their peers about the foundations of a free society. This training was not just for the future leaders of the world, but for young people who are ready to start leading today.
Resources - SFL distributed hundreds of thousands of resources to support pro-liberty students and encourage their education in the principles of freedom. These included 350,000 copies of our 5th book, "Self Control or Government Control?", recruitment kits for groups to use on their campuses, leadership handbooks, and much more.
I had no real idea about the organization when I first applied for a volunteer position. Since then, it has transformed me in more ways than I could possibly list. Along the way, I met tons of interesting people, some of which have become very close friends of mine. Can't wait for the next conference to meet the team again!
During my time volunteering for Students For Liberty, I have experienced students with not just great passion for liberty but I have also watched them grow and become effective leaders leading change in the world - both locally, nationally and internationally.
The volunteers at Students For Liberty are students who will go on to do great things in their adult lives, and I am proud to be a part of this movement.
