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.

When incubating Young Voices, Students For Liberty worked from the beginning to make it a sustainable endeavor with its own branding and niche in the pro-liberty movement. We believe it has reached a point where we can spin it off, allowing Young Voices’ staff to focus solely on its mission in order to grow beyond its current scale. As of Monday, May 11, I will be working full-time to make Young Voices even bigger and better.
Although I am sad to leave Students For Liberty, I look forward to giving Young Voices a stronger focus on issues affecting young people today and bring us greater notoriety as the PR shop of note for the millennial generation.
