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.
student org partnerships
The Institute for Youth in Policy is the leading nonpartisan organization that is strictly youth-led and youth founded. We are students helping other students succeed and we believe constructive discourse is the key to forging lasting impact, as the movement we are leading continues to grow.
Quality always comes first. All projects, teams, and programs are led by passionate leadership.
Our large membership keeps us on track to ensure the most efficient, innovative, and effective approach.
Motivation backing the Institute is formed by student's individual experience—it's key we reflect that.
One Big Team
Celebrate diversity, focus on inclusion. We work towards an equitable way to get involved with policy.
With a general acceptance rate of under 7% and a less than 0.5% direct admit rate to Leadership, we've been able to build a diverse community that features thousands of incredible young adults under the age of 25.
In the 2022-23 school year, the Institute had dozens of students admitted to top Institutions, some of the notable ones are listed below:
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.
This was my first real experience with policy analysis and now I’m absolutely certain that this is the career field that best suits me. YIP’s leaders and staff did a great job providing a platform to come together with others to work on policy projects, as well as being very friendly and helpful.
YIP helped open my eyes, through both my own projects and research as well as the findings and presentations of the other fellows, as to the significance of a plethora of public policy issues as well as various different perspectives to hold and solutions to address such problems.
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.
Admission to YIP’s internship freshman year of High School has honestly directed and qualified my extracurriculars for college and set me up for success with a framework of guidance.
