2019 Students For Liberty South Asia Local Coordinator Program
Deadline: July 15, 2019.
Students For Liberty is the world’s largest network of pro-liberty students. Our focus in South Asia is to help students become informed and critical thinkers about ideas pertaining to the political economy of their nation. An uninformed and passive exercise of thought leads to bad judgment, and bad judgment leads to support for bad policies.
The Local Coordinator Program is a platform for young liberal individuals to meet other like-minded people, learn more about the philosophy of liberty and assume leadership positions in the global students’ movement for liberty.
Applications are invited from Afghanistan, Bhutan, India, Liberty, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, South Asia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh
1. As an SFL Local Coordinator, you will have an enriching academic experience during your term. Students For Liberty will run an online summer training on SFLAcademy.org to give you a basic understanding of libertarian ideas on a few broad topics.
2. The most engaged students will be invited to attend a fully-sponsored retreat to spend a weekend with other Local Coordinators! Retreats are a great time to make new friends but students take away a better understanding of ideas they learned in the summer. They host a couple of great speakers, organise Socratic seminars and discuss more advanced topics in political economy.
3. The rest of the semester will be organised around learning more ideas and becoming better at articulating your views on issues that you care about! Environment? Women’s Issues? Privacy? Personal Liberty? Corruption? Education? You choose. We want to help you become the most articulate defender of those issues that you care about!
1. Fill the application form for the LC Program. Your application will be reviewed and you may be contacted by an SFL leader for an interview. We will write back to inform whether or not you’re progressing to take the Academic Training.
2. You will be invited for SFL’s Academic Training on SFLAcademy.org which you must finish in 6 weeks. We will invite the best performing candidates from those who finish the Academic Training to join us in the final stage of the LC Program.
3. The best applicants will make it to the final phase where they will be invited to attend an all-expenses-paid Local Coordinator Retreat. Attendance at the retreat is important for continuation in the Program.
