We are a youth run, nonpartisan Institute utilizing discourse to redefine the way youth interacts with policy. Within the Institute, young leaders cultivate curriculum, content, and policy which spurs fundamental innovation through discussional richness and diversity of thought.
Over the past year, we have operated 27 different programs to figure out what works the best. Based off of this, we've established the following prongs to set a gold standard in the fight for effective nonpartisan discourse.
