In 2022, The National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) took the first step toward creating a national high school free speech club network. 

School clubs will serve as free speech defenders to spread greater awareness of the threats to high school student speech while mobilizing their student communities to get involved.

NCAC ‘s  Youth Free Expression Program will provide advocacy training, guidance on activism to defend banned books and opportunities for leadership on issues like student free press freedom. Students also will receive assistance in amplifying their voices with publishing opportunities.
