This organization is one of the primary reasons behind my renewed confidence in my career endeavors. As a regional coordinator for this organization, I've had the pleasure of collaborating with officers throughout it's hierarchy. Each of them has carried a profound sense of professionalism, care, and tact in all of their interactions. I'm incredibly happy to give them my endorsement!

Students for Liberty gave me a platform as a student to help explore complex political ideas. What made SFL better than any other student organization was that they truly encouraged good faith conversations and healthy debates with those who might not agree with libertarian ideas initially.

SFL puts a focus on the intellectual discovery of their student volunteers and it results in students who constantly aim to overcome the political polarization that currently permeates today’s political climate.

The bottom up, rather than top down approach is also unique and creates leadership skills that last long into professional careers.

Students for Liberty has truly changed my life. After joining I have achieved things that I would have never even dreamed about like hosting conferences, traveling the country working with others, and even creating my own nonprofit organization. It’s because of the amazing confidence they put in their leaders and the resources they dedicate to allowing us to achieve our potential. SFL is truly a special organization.

SFL reached out to me while I was a freshman running a pro-liberty chapter on campus. They pushed me out of my comfort zone and taught me how to be an effective leader on campus. Thanks to SFL's help I had the tools and resources I needed to run a successful group on campus.

I met Students For Liberty at the same time that I started university. Participating at the coordinator program I made an incredible network, founded the first libertarian group in my city and organized more events than I can remember. I became a state coordinator, I was nominated Student of the Year and recently took over as a regional coordinator, but none of that surpasses the learning that SFL has provided me over that time. The experiences and achievements are extremely valuable, and it was with this background that I began to learn that liberty, when it begins to take root, is a plant of rapid growth.

This is an amazing organization to be a part of. I loved going to conferences organized by them, and they're the most autonomous and respectful of the liberty organizations that I'm a part of.

They're very inclusive, and open to different perspectives and as a libertarian this organization makes me proud to be a part of it. I like the internationalist style too

Decision of applying for Local Coordinator program has been the best one I have made in my life. Before joining Students For Liberty, I was completely different person, way more shy with way less ambitions. I could never think I would once be able to host great events or take part in changing the attitude towards the idea of liberty in Georgia, which is crucial for creating a country where people are able to live in a way they wish for.
Students For Liberty has great power to change students, make them stronger, way more experienced and educated, which is the main source for spreading the idea of liberty throughout the world.
I can never truly share my gratitude towards this organization, for making me who I am nowadays, for developing my personal and professional skills daily and for giving me power to strive for the main goal in my life - to make this world a bit more freer by hard work I can do for that!

SFL provides a unique framework and experience for those who are interested in the ideas of Liberty.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

I've always been a fan of Students for Liberty. Now more than ever I've come to see its importance, however. So many other students groups that ostensibly advocate for liberty and individual rights have succumbed to partisanship and bigotry. Students for Liberty has always taken the principled, non-partisan approach. SFL welcomes students of all backgrounds and identities to work together to create a better future.

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 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.

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.
