Young Voices

Young Voices is a global non-profit PR firm and talent agency working with a new generation of writers and commentators. Through our free programs, we empower young people around the world to get their voices heard in the mainstream media by providing training and guidance, editing and booking, mentorship services, and much more.

We live in an age of media disruption. In the past, social change was defined by white papers, a trusted press, and so-called “objective” experts. Today, it’s defined by eyeballs, clicks, and online influencers. The internet is the great equaliser in the marketplace of ideas.

This is an exciting time to be a young writer. It has never been easier for an upstart with a little talent and a lot of willpower to make a name for themselves. Yet, this brave new world of information also presents a number of challenges for a rookie. As journalism falls to the wayside, it is critical to become learned in its timeless ethics and practices. As the broadcast world expands to seemingly endless channels, it’s important to have relationships with bookers and mentors.

That’s where Young Voices comes in, providing fledgling writers with the guidance needed to succeed during the most critical years of their early career. We do so by acting as a copy editor, agent, and mentor to a roster of pro-liberty writers through our cornerstone Contributor Program. Our network generates hundreds of commentaries in print, online, TV, and radio every single month.

On top of our public relations capabilities, our writers have exclusive access to continuing education opportunities through our program, including training and mentorship from top think tank scholars. In short, Young Voices is a one-stop-shop for aspiring intellectuals to build their brand and develop their expertise and find a platform.

Since our start in 2013, Young Voices has seen several hundred young writers go through our program. Our list of alumni includes editors and senior journalists at national and international media organisations, leading academics and professors, high-profile activists and campaigners, and much more.

The Contributor Program is the cornerstone of Young Voices’ operations. It is active around the world, with the largest numbers of writers in the US and UK. A rigorous application process helps our staff identify the brightest rising stars. Upon acceptance into the program, each new contributor has access to Young Voices’ staff of editors and media experts. We’ll act as your nonprofit PR agency, editing and pitching your articles to top publications and scheduling interviews in broadcast media. The Contributor Program accepts new applicants twice each year. You can read more at Young Voices.

Young Voices also runs countless other programs including our Communications Apprenticeship, our Free to Speak op-ed campaign, and the Dissident Project. Young Voices also runs a European Fellowship, aiming to provide free PR services to ambitious young writers across Europe, even when they speak different languages or live in countries where basic rights like freedom of expression are not necessarily guaranteed.
