Young Elected Leaders Project

Launched in 2002 with funding from the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Young Elected Leaders Project (YELP) studies and works with young people who run for or hold public office. We provide unique insight into youth representation in U.S. political institutions and study young leaders’ experiences in public office.

The Young Elected Leaders Project is a program within the Center for Youth Political Participation housed at the Eagleton Institute of Politics at Rutgers University, New Brunswick.
