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.

That's the family that changed my life! You've got to attend at least one conference, or lecture, or just to meet one SFLer to get inspired, to get fully amazed by the most charming atmosphere of freedom and love. And then, you'll be driven by this idea, you'll attend more events, you will be starving to meet more people, to learn more about the ideas and to become the one who will do the same to others. Who will advocate for growth, for development, for presperity. You will be driven by your passion as you would have felt is in the atmosphere of your first conference, lecture or beer chat with someone as devoted as you are now. Because SFL is all about bringing you this spark that you will turn into your fire.

Students for Liberty is one of the few organizations that not only do I have deep respect for but also feel like I'm part of a family. They're doing incredible work in the liberty movement, and with their help, I was able to promote a cause that I care about at my school. Their training and professional development shaped me to be the person that I am now, and I'm eternally grateful for them.

Students For Liberty is the go-to organization for liberty minded students. Within Students For Liberty, I have got to work with some of the brightest individuals I have ever met. People in the organization are generally very open minded and keen to spread the message of liberty. Student For Liberty offers students a lot of great opportunities to develop themselves in various fields including writing, event organization, activism and many more. While Students For Liberty focuses on training the next leaders in LIBERTY, it is safe to say, that many students have also taken the skills they've developed during their years within the organization, to start a career in all fields across the spectrum. The organization invests in intelligent and motivated individuals, that are able to develop a wide variety of skills while spreading the message of liberty. Students who are going through the various Students For Liberty leadership trainings will benefit from them long after they've left the organization and utilize the acquired skills all along their future careers.

I go to Students For Liberty Conferences since I started at university. It's always a pleasure to meet inspiring people and challenge my mind with new ideas and perspectives. Publishing the magazine Peace Love Liberty for them in Germany was a perfect starting-point for my career as a journalist.

Students for Liberty stays true to its core principles at every level, demonstrating what liberty means in practice. The organization provides immense freedom for students to choose the initiatives they want to pursue, the skills they want to develop, and the difference they want to make. The best ideas and hardest workers filter to the top, and all are welcome as long as they are dedicated to promoting a freer, more compassionate future. I recommend getting involved as soon as possible- if the current rate of growth is any indicator, SFL is on track to be a potent force for change in the coming years.

Looking for a Classical Liberal that is Student based has been always difficult to find for a long time but with the creation of Students for Liberty, something has been created that has changed the Student experience for many all over the world. SFL is not only doing effective student activism in US colleges but it has expanded to most countries in the world including in countries which have been known to be strong havens for Socialism.

The effective International networking will mean that Students For Liberty will spread libertarian ideas in University Campuses in the majority of the World.

More transparent than other liberty organizations that I've dealt with. They've done a lot to help us on campus with the promotion of free speech during one of our events.

Students For Liberty is one of the best pro-liberty student organizations in the movement. Their innovative bottom-up structure gives the student volunteers the best chance to do the events with the most impact as the activists know their student base the best. I love working with them, and their staff is polite, welcoming, and really knowledgeable.

I joined SFL 4 months ago, although I've been following their activities for more than a year. It's a tremendously effective organisation thanks to its decentralisation and bottom-up approach. SFL is successfully creating a dynamic and diverse network of students all over the world, who are working to change hearts and minds and achieve a freer society, especially in countries where it is needed the most. Students for Liberty provides an amazing opportunity for young people to learn, to meet brilliant peers and to positively impact others.
