“Volunteering as an event manager with YPFP provided me with an opportunity to work on a broad range of topics of my interest, beyond what I was able to do at just my day job. During the Foreign Service examination and interview process I cited my experiences with YPFP on multiple occasions in order to demonstrate my passion for working on foreign policy went beyond my 9 to 5 job and how it provided me with a additional skill-sets not otherwise found on my resume."

“It's difficult to convey all the benefits I've received from my participation with YPFP. I've been a member for over 5 years and during that time, I've made great professional connections, forged strong and lasting friendships, engaged with professionals from all over the world, and learned skills and knowledge that I couldn't have gotten elsewhere. I sincerely believe that my Program Manager experience with the Intelligence Module was a key reason I was offered my current position as a Project Manager at a strategic communication firm, as it jump-started my experience and skills in that field.”
