Announcing Young Voices’ Campus Pundit Program for Current Students

Young Voices Announces Op-ed Program for Current Students

WASHINGTON, DC — College newspapers are hungry for opinion content. But, too often, libertarian students are too afraid to speak up. No more!

Young Voices is proud to announce our Campus Pundit Program. This fall, any current undergraduate or graduate student in the United States can be rewarded $50 for publishing a pro-liberty op-ed in his or her student newspaper.

Young Voices provides media outlets around the world with access to the best aspiring libertarian journalists and policy analysts under 30. By connecting pro-liberty students and young professionals with producers and journalists, we give the Millennial generation a voice for liberty and provide in-depth editorial training. Founded by Students For Liberty in 2013, Young Voices now operates independently as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Any student currently pursuing undergraduate or graduate studies in the United States can apply for Young Voices’ Campus Pundit Program at youngvoicesadvocates.com/campuspundit. If an applicant’s op-ed meets Young Voices’ quality standards, it will be copyedited by Young Voices’ team of professional editors in collaboration with its author.

After completion, the author will then be given instructions on how to pitch to his or her student newspaper. If accepted for publication, the author will be rewarded with a $50 commission from Young Voices. This opportunity is limit to one article per applicant.

Introducing the new Young Voices

Greetings! You are receiving this email because you’ve either signed up for updates from Young Voices on our website or downloaded our e-book, A Future for Millennials. This is the first issue of Young Voices’ monthly newsletter.

Where to begin? There’s been so much happening in the world of Young Voices (YV) recently, it’s a struggle to sum it up in a few paragraphs. Since its founding in 2013, YV has operated as a department of Students For Liberty (SFL) aimed at empowering the next generation of libertarian writers. That changed last month, when SFL offered YV the opportunity to become an independent nonprofit with a little seed funding. Since then, we’ve been in a flurry of activity —tax filings, staffing hires, grant applications, and so much more.

The bottom line is that YV is now a certified nonprofit in the District of Columbia awaiting tax-exempt status from the IRS. That means that we’re legally operating as an independent nonprofit!

Best of all, we’ve been able to maintain our daily operations during the transition, editing and pitching our Advocates’ op-eds to media outlets. Learn more about our activities below, and stay tuned for additional updates next month.
