What we're about
If you have an interest in international affairs and cultural exchange, then Young Professionals in International Affairs (YPIA) is the organization for you! At the heart of politics and global dialogue, our headquarters in Washington, DC provide an ideal outlet to engage with and discuss the wider world. While numerous organizations in the metro area focus on international affairs, how many actually let YOU discuss what YOU think?
Completely independent and non-partisan, YPIA facilitates a common forum and safe space to discuss diverse international issues. In addition to regular discussions, we also coordinate cultural exchanges, international cuisine events, author presentations, social/professional networking events, and guest lectures.
If you would like to hone your knowledge, develop your professional skills sets, dialogue with likeminded peers, and engage with the wider community, consider joining YPIA (https://secure.meetup.com/ypiadc/pay_dues/) and getting involved with our Programs (http://www.meetup.com/ypiadc/pages/YPIA_Program_Communities/)!
All are welcome learn more about YPIA and sign up for upcoming events!
