How We Work
As a think tank, we apply knowledge by directly engaging citizens and decision makers. Our core staff comprises of personnel including administrative staff, experts, researchers, policy analysts, consultants and volunteers.
The institute’s works are carried out within three broad departments.
These departments interplay and interrelate in accomplishing their tasks.
The Education Department oversees the design and implementation of the training and educational needs of the institute. This involves all trainings and education for both members and staff of AYI and the general public.
The Research Department designs and undertakes important researches that seek to promote and contribute to policies on good governance, democracy and a transparent policy environment.
The Policy Department discusses and contributes to policy formulations both internally and externally. This department ensures that policy debates on governance and economic issues take full account of the views of the youth and a broad range of the citizenry.
