YPFP is Bursting Bubbles in Foreign Policy

This year’s Affairs of State gala and fundraiser is part of a broader campaign to bring diverse topics, people, and places to the foreign policy ecosystem. Our programs will challenge the traditional constructs of foreign policy and transcend the hyper-polarized political environment to preserve a space for civil discourse while focusing on what matters most – building a generation of skilled leaders who are best-equipped and best-networked to tackle the most profound issues of our time.

From September to November, we will hold service events, innovative panel discussions, dinner and dialogue events, and fireside chats with inspirational leaders.
