Throughout our four-year history, Young Voices has accepted applicants to our Advocate Program on a rolling basis. While this has provided us with a steady pipeline of new talent, we want to make sure that each one of our writers is given the special attention needed to succeed as a rockstar communicator for liberty.
That’s why, moving forward, Young Voices will only be accepting new Advocates on a biannual basis. So, if you know a writer under 30 looking to jumpstart his or her career in liberty, please pass along this unique opportunity.
Applications for Young Voices’ fall 2017 Advocate class are now open for a limited time. Prospective Advocates should apply before September 8 for the chance to join the liberty movement’s premier collection of rising thought leaders.
Over the last twelve months, Young Voices incorporated as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, expanded our staff from two to four, more than doubled our average monthly article placements, and has ambitious plans for growth with radio and TV moving forward. We’re proud to present to you our first Annual Report, detailing our programatic successes over the past year.
Young Voices is on the move and growing everyday. We are excited to announce and introduce our 2017 Summer Interns!
Stephen Lusk is a marketing major at Mississippi State University and a participant in the Koch Internship Program Class of 2017! Stephen has been actively involved with Americans for Prosperity and is a Students For Liberty Campus Coordinator. When Stephen is not advocating for free societies, he can be found kayaking, talking college football, or grilling a mean steak.
Andreas Elterich is an economics and computer science student at American University. He is VP of AU Students for Liberty and the Association of Computing Machinery and was on the e-board for College YMCA Campus and Beekeeping Society. He studied in Edinburgh, Scotland in Spring 2017. He loves hiking and traveling new places.
Tim Joslyn is an incoming senior at George Mason University studying Public Administration and Economics. He has interned around DC with startups in the political reform space and is excited to take those experiences forward into his future endeavors. When not trying to repair politics, Tim loves to read science fiction/fantasy, play video games and throw the frisbee around with friends.
