Ukrainian Students for Freedom

— Ukrainian Students for Freedom is a non-profit organized around safeguarding freedom, encouraging just policy making, and spreading the principles of liberty. Our mission is to unite, educate, and mobilize young Ukrainians who are committed to the ideal of freedom. Our generation was the first to be born in a free and independent Ukraine. We want to preserve that freedom for present and future Ukrainians. With this freedom, we believe Ukraine can achieve new heights of peace and prosperity.

The cornerstone of our mission is to build an All-Ukrainian network of young leaders. We pride ourselves on selecting members who follow our ideals, and who we believe have the potential for leadership.
Much of the our training for new members is focused on education and increasing awareness. Our members are taught through both experiences in the classroom and and practical experiences. Each and every member has the chance to learn about different spheres of leadership; from communicative skills to policy making.
Our organization takes direct action to change Ukraine. We are dedicated to mobilizing all our recourses and all of our leaders to support liberty. We are involved in a wide range of activities; from supporting policy proposals to hosting and funding events.

The work of Ukrainian Students for Freedom has strengthened my hope for the future,” said Dr. Tom Palmer, executive vice president for international programs and George M. Yeager chair for advancing liberty at Atlas Network. “In a country riven by factionalism and cronyism, war and violence, a principled group of young people have boldly stood up for liberty and the rule of law, for property and free exchange, for limited government as the framework for voluntary and peaceful cooperation, in short, for the public good. Ukrainian Students for Freedom work closely with Atlas Network's partners and their activist network stretches throughout the country. They demand a free country and they will have it.

A very unique event was held by Ukrainian Students for Freedom on November 23-25 in Kyiv.  The event of such kind was organized for the first time in the Eastern Europe! Students’ Model of Congress — a simulation game for students and young leaders.

This game reflects the mechanism of work of the US Congress. The event was held in form of congressional hearings, each of which has its own specification. By analogy with the structure of the US Congress, participants of Students’ Model of Congress were divided into two parties: The Blue Party and the Yellow Party — ideologically polar political forces, each of which defended its ideals and principles of state building.

The following issues were discussed during the Event:  Privatization of state-owned enterprises; educational reform; implementation of E-Government; a nuclear-free status of Ukraine; gun control reform; etc.

It were a very productive 3 days for 100 participants, who were representing 23 universities from 15 regions of Ukraine! Also, among the invited guests of the event, we had 3 deputies of Ukrainian parliament, who spoke with motivational speeches for our youth. We hope that the skills and experience gained during the event will be useful to our participants in the future!

At such a difficult time for our country, we are glad that there are young people who can and definitely will create a better future for all of us — a future without wars, corruption and inefficiency.
