About us

Get to know the Youth Policy Labs team: We are a multidisciplinary team of researchers, communicators, content creators, and practitioners with a wide range of backgrounds. Founded in 2010 and generously supported by the Open Society Foundations, our work started at youthpolicy.org – building a hub for knowledge and expertise on youth, youth policies, and youth issues. Today, we are an independent, not-for-profit think tank and research agency actively collaborating with civil society organizations, agencies and governments. As a team it’s clear to us that YPL is unlike any other workplace we know of – While the work we do is often complex, working together feels easy because the atmosphere is welcoming and supportive, playful and kind.
