ABOUT YP

Improving lives through free market solutions

The YP program at Washington Policy Center is a community of diverse 18-39 year olds in Washington state who love sound public policy. We believe the best way to support the dignity of every individual in Washington state and beyond is by empowering them through skills, community involvement, and an atmosphere of robust market innovation that unleashes the creativity and potential of each person.

That's why we are passionate about policies that enrich lives by giving everyday people opportunities to innovate what needs to be fixed. We believe in removing barriers that limit freedom, innovation, and decision-making. We value individual creativity because we know that it's people, not government, who make the world a better place. This free market approach is what we're all about. We embrace civil discussion, opportunities to educate our members, and a Policy + Action mindset where we walk it like we talk it, actively seeking ways to make Washington state a better place to live, work, and raise a family!
