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 and governance ecosystem in the country by expanding the pool of talented individuals committed to working in the space.
Launched in 2016, the program now runs in the four cities of Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru and Hyderabad. It is a highly selective engagement that receives a large number of outstanding applications from a diverse pool of candidates. The program is designed as a mix of weekend sessions and remote collaboration that makes it 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 link for more details.
