The Institute for Youth in Policy (YIP) is a politically nonpartisan nonprofit which was founded in July of 2020. Too often we see the the strategic subjugation of opinion negatively affecting our future. Through constructive discourse, policy education, and policy research our aim is to engage youth in politics through a neoteric and constructive lens which exposes and teaches them to effectively interact with a profusion of views and opinions. Whilst other organizations simply claim to be effective, innovative, nonpartisan, and student-led, YIP puts those claims into practice. The real approach has worked wonders thus far and will continue to do so in the future.
We always strive for the most efficient, effective, and innovative means of operation. To help us reach this goal, we collect feedback from all members and over the course of over 3100 participants we have found impressive numbers.
