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 provide a platform to discuss the latest books on current and foreign affairs, and often with the authors themselves. 

The Lecture Series include experts from the New York City foreign policy community offering in-depth analysis and insight into the most pressing geopolitical issues of the day.

The Consulate Series offers members a glimpse into how consulates from countries around the world operate in New York City and at the UN

Tools of the Trade provides members with the tools and skills to help them pursue a career in international relations along with valuable networking opportunities.

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