Bridging Continents

The Branden Center at the Institute for Youth in Policy was founded with a clear vision: to bridge the gap in understanding and cooperation between the United States and East Asia. Recognizing the growing importance of this relationship on the global stage, the center emerged as a response to the need for deeper, more nuanced engagement between these critical geopolitical players. The center's inception was driven by a commitment to fostering informed dialogue, mutual respect, and collaborative solutions to shared challenges, acknowledging that the future of global policy is increasingly interconnected and reliant on these key regions.

Motivated by the desire to cultivate a new generation of policy leaders well-versed in the complexities of US-East Asia relations, the Brenden Center seeks to enlighten and engage young minds. Through a combination of research, education, and direct diplomatic initiatives, the center aims to build a robust platform for young innovators and leaders to explore and influence the dynamics of this pivotal international relationship.
