About NYC

In 2007, YPFP came to New York City, where today our membership spans financial institutions, international organizations, consulting firms, media, and non-profits.

NYC Programs

Author Series and Book Clubs - Each month, we hold an hour-long discussion with a professor, author or journalist in international affairs, which serves as an opportunity for our membership at-large across the globe to connect and discuss pressing, timely current events and topics with leading foreign policy experts.

Ambassador Series -  This is one of YPFP NY's flagship series. This series provides an opportunity to YPFP members and guests to hear from Heads of Mission to the UN, and Consul Generals at the multiple Consulates in NY. Topics are related to the interest of Consulates and Missions, given developments in their regions or country, or work that they have been doing on the World Stage. Global diplomacy, international relationships, gender equality, and multilateralism are transversal to most of these conversations.

Professional Development Series - This is a joint program led by the NY and DC branches. The beauty of these events is that they are open to all kinds of audiences. Leadership, networking, how to optimize your Linkedin profile and resume, how to manage your energy (physical, mental, emotional), how to set our goals and make them achievable are only a few topics we have already covered during these events.

YPFP capitalizes on New York’s centrality as a global financial capital, a major media center, and the headquarters of the United Nations.
