Do you believe in a freer future for Africa? Are you passionate about liberty and want to learn about free markets and the ideas of a free society?
If you answered yes to all the questions above, this is for you!
It is without doubt that, in Africa, the concept of liberty has a long way to go.
Students For Liberty, in line with our mission to develop and empower the next generation of leaders of liberty, has been working on several projects to educate and intellectually empower future leaders of liberty in Africa, and across the world on issues pertaining to individual rights, free speech, entrepreneurship, as well as policy-making ‒ to mention just a few.
The SFL Academy project brings these resources together for easy access to all of Students For Liberty’s educational materials and courses.
SFL Academy can be described as a one-stop shop for important libertarian content. It is a web-based training and learning program that affords students access relevant libertarian content and the ability to test their knowledge of what they have just studied at no cost.
The Students For Liberty Academy project has been designed to replicate the conventional school system style of learning, yet has been infused with modern techniques and approaches to studying. This is inherent in the use of a web-based form of schooling that can be accessed using web enabled computers, laptops, as well as mobile devices. Cool isn’t it?
