Since 2017, Young Voices has offered our contributors the opportunity to take a deep-dive on specific issue areas with our policy fellowships, pairing up a cohort of our writers with policy organizations and mentors with the expectation of producing tailored media hits.
Young Voices currently has two active policy fellowships on school choice and consumer freedom. This page will be updated periodically with media hits from the programs.
Despite decades of federal interventions and trillions of taxpayer dollars spent, the U.S. is still falling behind the rest of the industrialized world in K-12 education. It doesn’t have to be like this. States and localities have taken charge in giving children new educational opportunities through school choice options (e.g. charter schools, voucher programs, educational savings accounts). Young Voices is pairing up with the American Federation for Children to promote pieces on the importance of access to a good education.

Special interests regularly lobby governments to restrict consumer freedom to big business’ benefit with little opposition. Young Voices is aiming to change that by standing up for freedom on issues like vaping and tort reform. Young Voices is teaming up with the Consumer Choice Center to produce pieces advocating for pro-liberty policy reforms on issues that will lower the prices of goods and services and expand choice.
