What is Young Parliamentary Associates (YPA) Programme?
The Young Parliamentary Associates (YPA) programme is an initiative of the European Union that seeks to recruit and train young professionals from various academic backgrounds to provide support to the legislatures in Pakistan.
It is a unique opportunity for professionals to participate in public policy making and to explore areas where they can contribute to strengthening the legislatures by facilitating the functioning of Committees and Secretariat through research and administrative support.
The Associates are recruited for a period of 12 months. Candidates selected as federal YPAs stayed at Islamabad while Provincial YPAs are placed with Provincial Assemblies.
