Young Voices offers our contributors the opportunity to take a deep-dive on issues that they’re passionate about, aided by resources and mentorship we receive from our partner organizations.

Young Voices currently has three active policy campaigns on school choice, consumer freedom, and technology. Each media hit is the expressed opinion of the author alone (see our Code of Ethics). This page will be updated periodically with relevant media hits.

School Choice

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).

Technology & Innovation

For three decades, the internet has thrived because of American lawmakers’ light-touch approach to regulation. But recently, Beltway politicians on both the left and right have been seeking to change this winning formula with proposals to regulate Big Tech like a public utility. Young Voices is pushing back.
