Want to conduct an ìpolicy in your school?
The total population of India is 133.92 crores and the total school going children stands at 18.5 crores.
Majority of school going Indians are following a mundane path which mainly comprises of engineering or medical. considering the current Indian education system children are often pressurized not just from parents but also from externalities to take these career choices.
While India is a growing economy, it not only needs engineers and doctors, but it also needs people in the space of public policy, social service and other domains that need a lot of attention and focus through our youth. Considering the fact that most of our educational policies are not that efficient and the people at the helm of affairs are not willing to change the policies and bring in the reforms in these policies. Our youth is our voice and we need the youth to stand up and make this country a better place by reforming the policies for this we need the youth to take up and be the agents of change.
With ipolicy at schools we aim to focus on these issues and try to give a better understanding of these issues, so that our youth just doesn't stay in the rat race and go beyond that. We try to bring in the change within the society by making the leaders of tomorrow and help envision a new India.

What our Alumni says about our public policy courses
I could now examine every situation clearly and keeping in mind the consequences that would affect me. I now compare before making any decision the cost and the advantages I would have to bear and then decide wisely
Ipolicy helped me in learning how one real life problem could be approached in innumerable ways. It helped me in creating an empathetic and informed ideology regarding people, and society in general.
Ipolicy actually urged me to think over concepts in a broader and defined way. It put forward what the real concept conventionally says and how we think and feel about it. It challenged us to raise some questions about the similar political issues.
What I think is that people should explore themselves and indulge themselves into new experiences. Ipolicy has been a new experience for me. I have not only learned to think beyond the level but also got an opportunity to explore my ideas
The ipolicy has stimulated my thought process and has engaged my interest in public policy and understanding how an economy works
Ipolicy really satisfied my aim to attend this workshop which was to become a better person and be the change that I want to see in this world and with that have an idea of that change.
The program directed my attention towards developing opinions and issues that weren't considered that important to me and has also helped me create a more critical viewpoint regarding public administration.
Ipolicy totally changed my perspective. I came to understand the problems which I earlier never could think of.
