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.
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).
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.
