Does it Cost Money to be a Students for Life Group?

No – everything Students for Life of America provides to campus groups comes free of charge (with the exception of special opportunities like mission trips). This includes material pro-life resources, access to displays, pro-life training, and personal guidance from an SFLA Regional Coordinator.


Can Students for Life of America Tell My Group What To Do?

No, your Students for Life group is an autonomous entity. We are always here for help and support, but you are in charge. The only thing we have some say in is how the name “Students for Life” is used, as it is a registered trademark. Your Regional Coordinator will discuss this with you upon the formation of a new Students for Life group.
