Welcome to the Youth Public Policy Institute! Based in the city of Sunnyvale, California, the Institute equips high school students with the skills and resources to advocate for their community. Under the tutelage of local elected officials and willing civic leaders, students have a chance to learn about local government workings and research a community issue of their interest. Students from all over the Bay Area are invited to participate in this program; the Institute is not solely for Sunnyvale residents.

Students are already busy with policy projects! To learn more about students and their current causes, click here.

If you are a teen interested in government and advocating for your local community, learn how to apply here.
