The Policy in Action Program is a month long engagement for young professionals and university students keen to explore the fields of public policy and development. The program is designed to deliver core skills in policy analysis, advocacy and leadership, along with the experience of working on live projects for sitting Members of Parliament.
Public policy can be a potent tool for civic action. The Policy in Action Program is YLAC’s attempt to increase citizen engagement with the policy making process and equip people with the skills necessary to drive change.
