As a nonprofit public relations shop, Young Voices provides a range of services for students and young professionals. From formal trainings to one-on-one mentorship, we can help you or your pupils learn the nuts and bolts of advocacy in the internet age.
Young Voices’ premier project is our Advocate program, providing pro bono op-ed editing and placement services to talented young writers knowledgeable in the classical liberal tradition. After a rigorous application process, accepted Advocates gain access to Young Voices’ copyediting and public relations capabilities. Our staff works as each Advocate’s personal communications team, editing and pitching their work for op-ed publication and TV/radio opportunities. >Learn More
Campus Pundit Scholarship
In the fall of 2016, Young Voices launched a new program expanding our op-ed editing services to current college students in the United States. Young Voices rewarded students for successfully placing articles in their campus newspaper defending Americans’ constitutional liberties. We use this program to identify new talent and to promote the ideas of liberty in an academic environment that is too often hostile to them. For the spring 2018 term, Young Voices will be rewarded $2,000 worth of scholarships for the top submissions. >Learn More
Looking to the future, Young Voices is aiming to hone our advocacy and target specific policies. We intend to do so by launching issue-specific fellowships where a select cohort of our Advocates will receive intensive training on particular policies with the expectation of producing regular commentary in print and on radio/TV over the course of four months. Our first experiment with this model ran from November 2017 to March 2018, called the Free Society Fellowship. 10 Fellows produced 37 op-eds messaging the fundamental policies of a peaceful and prosperous society (i.e. free speech, trade, rule of law) versus the dangers of illiberal populism rising around the world. >Learn More
