Policy in Action

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. It is also an attempt to strengthen the development ecosystem by expanding the pool of talented and committed individuals working in the space.
Launched in 2016, the Policy in Action Program now runs in Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The program is highly selective and receives a large number of outstanding applications from a diverse pool of candidates in each city. With a mix of weekend sessions and remote collaboration, the schedule is easy to accommodate alongside regular study and work commitments.
The 2019 Hyderabad edition of the program is currently accepting applications. Applications to the Bengaluru edition have already closed. Please select your city of interest below and follow the links for details.
