Mission

The Institute for Youth in Policy is a youth-run, nonpartisan Institute utilizing discourse to redefine the way youth interacts with policy. Within the Institute, young leaders cultivate curriculum, content, and policy which spurs fundamental innovation through discussional richness and diversity of thought. 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. Our large membership keeps us on track to ensure the most efficient, innovative, and effective approach.

Effective Discourse

The Effective Discourse branch’s mission is to expand and deepen the futuristic brand by developing a lasting and active political community through various settings and mediums. This plays into the Institute for Youth in Policy’s greater mission by energizing young people to actively partake in productive discourse through actionable methods of communication.

YIP's Civic Innovations department is one of those environments. It is the hub for YIP's miscellaneous pilot programs that allows YIP to launch and grow various creative projects that otherwise wouldn't fit within any other preexisting departments. Projects taken in by Civic Innovations are intentionally diverse, attempting to intersect politics with numerous other industries and fields of study, such as business, computer science, data, writing, and so on. The defining characteristics of the department are very much creative freedom, interdisciplinary excellence, and an entrepreneurial mindset.

The Institute’s Education Department is committed to providing students with thorough knowledge of contemporary political issues and the skills needed to discuss these issues in a productive manner. Not only are civic engagement and civics education lacking among younger generations today, but our harshly partisan political climate is preventing students from understanding the many dimensions of an issue in a way that makes effective problem-solving possible. Our Education team at YIP seeks to change these trends through a nonpartisan, discourse-based approach to civics curriculum.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Institute pioneers student-led, nonpartisan work through policy, innovation, education, and discourse to propel political progress and reinvigorate democracy. The most important part of that reinvigoration process is getting America talking again -- hence, our slogan: discourse, with direction.

The Institute has planned a simple three-prong approach that will bring it to the next level.

(1) Building out our brand new Civic Innovations branch, which incubates various creative and world-changing projects oriented towards discourse.

(2) Invest human capital and software resources into the Institute's supporting functions -- effectively modernizing and creating new operational departments and systems.

(3) Expand our direct advocacy through hosting two consistent 100-person policythons per quarter.
