YP3 educates youth and young professionals on the principles of parliamentary procedure as they relate to meeting management and non-profit governance, provides opportunities for volunteer leadership, and establishes a forum to exchange information among our membership. We are a tax-exempt Section 501(c)(3) District of Columbia non-profit corporation.
Our mission is to make your organization’s mission possible. We do this by connecting and educating youth and young professionals in meeting procedure and democratic decision-making to groom future generations into an informed and active citizenry that can lead and govern organizations.
We are affiliated with the National Association of Parliamentarians as a constituent division since January 2017. Our unit – Young Professionals Parliamentary Practice Unit (YP3U) – is wholly-owned and operated by us. If you join YP3, you may choose to be a member of YP3U.
By joining YP3U, you have a home unit and additional educational opportunities. While our unit charges no additional fee to affiliate, NAP membership dues and Electronic Association of Parliamentarians (EAP) association dues also apply. We can help you prepare for the NAP Membership Exam.
