Resource Library

This library is a collection of resources submitted by SLSV Coalition partners. The tags and definitions were self-submitted by Coalition partners. Interested in submitting a resource to be included in the Resource Library? Submit your resource here. Submission is not a guarantee that your resource will be accepted. Check out the guidance below before submitting a resource. 

Resources are: programs, toolkits, action planning guides, publications, recommended readings, graphics/media/creative materials, websites, presentations, event planning materials, replicable best practices, civic technology, campus strategies, and other evergreen resources. 

Our resources library does not contain: job postings, press releases, and advertisements that promote an organization or product, partisan resources, and resources outside of the scope of the Coalition (i.e. resources that don’t align with any of the SLSV Coalition’s guiding principles and don’t advance our work within student and/or youth democratic engagement).
