Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Education, Unknown

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 over 10,000 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.

SFL made a breakthrough in my understanding of social change. With the help of Studens For Liberty I've started Legalize Belarus, the only organisation in Belarus fighting for decriminalisation of drug use in the country. SFL is first of all a network of great people: once you're in, you'll always be part of the community.

Being a coordinator for Students For Liberty (SFL) myself, I can’t emphasise enough how much the organisation and its people brought me. If you’re a student or a young professional and want to advance liberty, then SFL is the organisation you want to join. They’re the reason why I first started to read about classical liberal ideas, political philosophy and even economics; I wrote articles that got published because of the legitimacy the name of SFL gave me. Finally, SFL being an international network, you get to meet pro-liberty people from all over the world at various events and exchange with people and culture you would have never encountered if not through SFL.

Best student organization in the world, consists of the brightest young thinkers in our generation. Their worldwide activity has a massive impact on the promotion of liberty, and that includes countries where one wouldn’t believe liberty is even being discussed at. Join this great movement and help promoting liberty the right way (throughout peace and love)!

I got involved with SFL about a year ago. Since becoming a coordinator, they have helped me grow as a leader on my campus by providing resources and trainings for myself and other passionate students!

Students for Liberty is one of the few student groups that I think are actively making a difference. Their events are incredibly well run and the members are so inspiring. SFL really supports its activists and engage in the spreading of ideas not partisan politics. It’s so refreshing to see people actively committed to having conversations and working with people rather than antagonizing others. It’s no wonder SFL has gotten so big in such little time!

Students for Liberty helped me evolve my current passions and motivated me to discover my professional strengths. Whereas, in high school I was pretty quiet and never really thought of myself as a leader, SFL’s campus coordinator program helped me develop skills that I was unaware I could possess. I have my current position due to SFL.

Students For Liberty is an incredible nonprofit student organization that advocates for individual liberty across the entire globe. Through SFL, I was given the opportunity to learn more about these ideas, meet like-minded individuals from Europe, Africa, South Asia, and Latin America that will be my friends for life.

SFL has empowered me as a student leader with the skills and tools necessary to impact my campus and my community. Thanks to SFL I’ve been able to launch and grow a strong organization on my campus, and I’ve been able to use the skills I’ve learned through SFLs programs to find a job in the non-profit space.

Students For Liberty is a rapidly growing network of pro-liberty students. Their mission is to educate, develop, and empower the next generation of leaders for liberty. SFL's work is global in scope, with a presence on every inhabited continent, and their bottom up leadership style encourages collaboration among groups at the local, regional, and even national levels. With their recent acquisition of Learn Liberty, SFL is positioned to reach millions of people with liberty-focused programming. And while their activism campaigns might garner the most attention, they also help students advance towards their personal and career goals, giving them the information and training they need to be successful. Student leaders can expect to gain proficiency with event planning, time management, public speaking, and similar skills. My experience with SFL has been overwhelmingly positive, and the friends and memories I've made will last a lifetime.

SFL is a strong and confident voice for liberty on college campuses around the world. It avoids many of the shortfalls of other student political organizations, because its international approach keeps events in perspective. It always feels a few years more mature than other organizations.

Students for Liberty (SFL) has been one of the few organizations I have worked with/for that has never let me down. With an international scope, SFL's robust structure and sturdy channels of communication make networking with a diverse range of activists extremely easy and helped me establish connections and friendships with many individuals who share a strong support for individual liberty. SFL's goals have always been ambitious but those working on all levels of the organization, top to bottom, leave no challenge or obstacle seeming impossible. I will always be proud of the work I've contributed to SFL and the impact I've been able to make worldwide.
