Application Deadline Extended to May 1!
The Students For Liberty Executive Board is pleased to announce that applications for the 2012-2013 Campus Coordinator Program is now open!
The Campus Coordinator Program is the driving force behind SFL’s work in providing resources and support for pro-liberty student groups. A Campus Coordinator (CC) is a student leader who operates remotely from their home campus with three main objectives: to assist student groups in their region, to establish new student groups in their region, and to help organize and run SFL events in their region.
Last year, SFL expanded the CC Program to 60 students from 22 different states, 3 Canadian provinces, and one CC in Venezuela. The CC Program has been a driving force in SFL’s significant growth this past year, and with more CCs in 2012-2013, we intend to reach even more students by providing SFL’s high quality resources and conferences to new regions. As we often say, we have not yet come close to finding all the pro-liberty students out there.
Members of the CC Program will work with Regional Directors of the Executive Board to establish and implement outreach strategies that are tailored to the unique environment the CC is responsible for. This is an opportunity for young leaders who enjoy meeting new people, organizing events, and making a tangible impact in the cause of liberty to find new allies in creating a free society. If you have already achieved success on your campus and want to take your activism to the next level, then this is the program for you. SFL firmly believes that the college is the ideal location to spark a love of individual liberty and economic freedom, and CCs are a prime force for igniting that passion.
From May through July, new CCs will go through training process including readings and webinars to prepare for their new positions. This training will culminate in the 2012 CC Retreat from July 20 – July 22, 2012 (which all new CCs are required to attend). After completing this training, new CCs will begin reaching out to students on August 1, 2012.
All members of the CC Program must either be current students or have graduated no more than 2 years prior to their enrollment in the CC Program.
Ideal candidates will also have the following qualities:
- At least 1 year of experience running a pro-liberty student group;
- Ability to manage multiple projects at once;
- Strong self-motivation to complete projects with little to no oversight;
- A passion not only for the ideas of liberty but for organizing and leading to make the world a freer place; and
- Enjoy staying up until 2am talking to other students about how to advance liberty.
Candidates who are considering applying for the CC Program are welcome to contact current CCs to gain additional insights on the responsibilities, requirements, and qualifications for the program.
Step 1: Complete the online application available here.
Step 2: SFL will offer interviews to the most promising candidates under consideration. (Note: due to the large volume of applications SFL receives, we cannot offer interviews to all candidates.)
Step 3: SFL may request additional interviews or materials from candidates.
The CC Program has a rolling admissions process, but spots are limited. As such, early applications are strongly encouraged. From May – July, all accepted CCs will undergo a rigorous training program via webinars. This training will culminate with a mandatory, three-day retreat in Washington DC from July 20-22, 2012.
