The Institute for Youth in Policy (YIP) seeks to re-engage young adults in politics through a constructive lens. Over the last forty years, there has been an unfortunate increase in policy-based divisiveness. Frankly, YIP intends to reverse this trend.
Through discourse, an instrumental good, we tackle this trend head-on and utilize it as a means to an end - a revitalized country where richness and diversity of thought are commonplace and prevailing. Our real and effective approach has worked wonders thus far and will continue to do so in the future.

Words from our members
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 fun.
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.
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.
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. 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.
