As a nonprofit public relations shop, Young Voices provides a range of services for students and young professionals. From formal trainings to one-on-one mentorship, we can help you or your pupils learn the nuts and bolts of advocacy in the internet age.
Young Voices’ premier project is our Advocate program, providing pro bono op-ed editing and placement services to talented young writers knowledgeable in the classical liberal tradition. After a rigorous application process, accepted Advocates gain access to Young Voices’ copyediting and public relations capabilities. Our staff works as each Advocate’s personal communications team, editing and pitching their work for op-ed publication and TV/radio opportunities.
Who we are
Young Voices’ mission is to cultivate the next generation of thought leaders for liberty in policy, journalism, and academia. We do so by providing writing training, editing, and media placement services to aspiring pundits under 30. Founded in 2013, our Advocates have been featured in The Daily Beast, Forbes, Fox, The Guardian, Newsweek, National Review, Playboy, Reason, SiriusXM, USA Today and many other notable publications.
Our alumni have received fellowships and full-positions with organizations like the American Civil Liberties Union, Cato Institute, Foundation for Government Accountability, Manhattan Institute, Reason Foundation, and The Washington Examiner.
Who we’ve helped
Since our start in 2013, Young Voices has seen over 200 young writers go through our Advocate Program. Our list of alumni includes current editors, managers, and scholars at organizations like Brown University, the Foundation for Government Accountability, The Washington Examiner, Fox 5 DC, and the Reason Foundation. Below are a few quotes from Young Voices’ alumni describing the impact we’ve had on their career.
I was hired as an assistant editor at “The National interest” on the strength of my experiences. especially my articles and TV appearances through Young Voices. If it weren’t for doors Young Voices opened, I wouldn’t be where I am today.

Assistant Editor, The National Interest
In two years I went from being an obscure voice writing on a personal blog to a recognized voice regularly publishing on some of the most respectful outlets in my field. This was made possible by Young Voices. From the editorial guidance to the pitching and networking, being in Young Voices has been one of the most enriching experiences of my professional career.
