About Us

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.
