Frequently Asked Questions

What is YIP?

YIP stands for "Institute for Youth in Policy". The Institute for Youth in Policy conducts and communicates independent, high-quality research to improve nonpartisan education policy and practice. Working with policymakers, researchers, educators, community groups, and others, the Institute seeks to advance evidence-based policies that support empowering and equitable learning for each and every teen. Nonprofit and nonpartisan, the Institute connects policymakers and stakeholders at the local, state, and federal levels with the evidence, ideas, and actions needed to strengthen the education system from preschool through college and career readiness.

What does a typical day at YIP look like?

YIP's current operations are conducted entirely remotely, with a diverse team spanning over 7 time zones. We use 21st century tools like Slack to keep all team members in the loop about what's going on at any given time. All meetings are held virtually as of July 2021; however, we plan to expand our Chapters into schools across the country in hybrid and in-person models, adhering to CDC guidelines.

With regards to leadership structure, our operations are divided into four main "departments": Publishing, Programming, Networks, and Strategic Innovations; each team has a director and most departments have sub-departments. There are also smaller teams that handle our internal affairs: HR, Legal, Tech, and Finance. We are governed by a Board of Directors and meet with members of our Advisory Board on a monthly basis.
