This grassroots program seeks out strong student leaders to spread the ideas of a free society by starting new pro-liberty student groups, organizing events to promote the ideas of liberty, providing resources to student groups, and identifying and mentoring other pro-liberty students. The Ukrainian Leadership Program is the offspring of similar programs around the globe, in places like North America, Latin America, Europe, Africa, and South Asia. Students in the Program have the unique opportunity to work to advance liberty and develop their skills with like-minded individuals from around the world as we work together to achieve a freer future for everyone.
The USFL Leadership Program seeks to build the student movement for liberty in Ukraine by identifying, training, and supporting the strongest student leaders of liberty in various universities all around Ukraine. If you are not a student in Ukraine, check out some of the other programs that Students For Liberty runs in other regions.
All students selected for entry to the Leadership summer training program undergo in-depth online training with readings and seminars on the philosophy of liberty and campus organizing techniques. This training will educate incoming Student Leaders on the best practices SFL has developed over the years to effectively create a student movement for liberty. With our great training, you will learn how to take your activism to the next level, and make a difference in your university!
Those who complete online training will be invited to attend an in-person retreat where they will be welcomed into the USFL family. The retreat brings together Student Leaders, Executive Board members, and staff of both USFL and SFL for a three-day intensive retreat featuring in-person training and bonding.
When the school year starts, Leaders will begin working with student groups at their own schools and at nearby campuses, run events that educate others on the meaning of liberty, and seek to identify other pro-liberty students in their areas. Student Leaders will work closely with other leaders to build the student movement for liberty by creating long-lasting, meaningful mechanisms to support pro-liberty students. Being a student leader allows for you to make a serious impact on your campus promoting liberty, all while acquiring and developing important professional skills.
