ABOUT US

The Institute for Youth in Policy (YIP) is a politically nonpartisan nonprofit which was founded less than a year ago. Too often we see the the strategic subjugation of opinion in polarized public and private institutions. Through constructive discourse, policy education, and policy research our aim is to engage youth in politics through a neoteric and constructive lens which exposes teens and young adults to 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 and effective approach has worked wonders thus far and will continue to do so in the future.

what our members say when we ask:

What has our performance been like?

Our latest efforts:

"YIP, over the past several months, has been trying to make a more effective and efficient team. Specifically, leadership has been building and trying out different methods of management so that the overall mission can be translated as best as possible. Seeing how well people and departments are functioning, I think this is a testament to YIP's commitment to its mission."
- Kavya Venugoplan, Interim Legal Director

Effective & Efficient:

"The team is constantly working on bettering the overall programs. Furthermore, current leadership is receptive and easily accessible! I appreciate the fact that they are easy to reach, and I have never felt as though I had to jump over obstacles in order to reach them."
- Publishing Team Jr. Fellow

A land of Opportunity:

"My time in writing for the Institute for Youth in Policy has been one of intellectual growth and greater understanding. In a world full of political polarization and misinformation, YIP gives youth the opportunity to bridge the gap and to set the foundation for reasoned discourse."
- Xaxa Smith, Publishing Team Fellow

Policy Publishing:

"Every article allows young writers to freely explore political and policy-related topics that interest them in great depth in addition to equipping them with useful research skills. Reading and editing these articles has personally helped me learn more about matters I would probably not have been aware of or sought out on my own. Moreover, the nature of the YIP community makes it so that people are comfortable with and even encouraged to share opinions of any kind with peers."
