What is the Local Coordinator Program?
Students For Liberty is the world’s largest network of pro-liberty students. Our focus in South Asia is to help students become informed and critical thinkers about ideas pertaining to the political economy of their nation. An uninformed and passive exercise of thought leads to bad judgment, and bad judgment leads to support for bad policies.
Students For Liberty believes that in the marketplace of ideas, the good ones root out the bad ones. But the ideas of freedom – individual rights, toleration, rule of law – that have been the foundation of successful nations are poorly represented in mainstream dialogue. That is why a lot of young people do not associate with the views of any major political party.
We want to affect positive change, not by protest or demonstrations, but by creating a movement that is focussed on disseminating the right ideas through passionate student leaders who agree with our vision and strategy for social change.
The Local Coordinator Program is a platform for young liberal individuals to meet other like-minded people, learn more about the philosophy of liberty and assume leadership positions in the global students’ movement for liberty!
What SFL Offers
As an SFL Local Coordinator, you will have an enriching academic experience during your term. Students For Liberty will run an online summer training on SFLAcademy.org to give you a basic understanding of libertarian ideas on a few broad topics.
The most engaged students will be invited to attend a fully-sponsored retreat to spend a weekend with other Local Coordinators! Retreats are a great time to make new friends but students take away a better understanding of ideas they learned in the summer. We host a couple of great speakers, organise Socratic seminars and discuss more advanced topics in political economy.
The rest of the semester will be organised around learning more ideas and becoming better at articulating your views on issues that you care about! Environment? Women’s Issues? Privacy? Personal Liberty? Corruption? Education? You choose. We want to help you become the most articulate defender of those issues that you care about!
During one year of your tenure you’ll be organizing events in your college and community.
SFL will not provide you remuneration, but you’ll receive funds for the event you want to conduct. The experience and wide range of network you earn from SFL is invaluable.
