YPI is an organisation founded by youth for youth with the goal to involve youth in their own peace processes. As youth are the ones to implement any peace agreement they should have the possibility to have a role in this formal process. Specifically YPI currently focuses on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict bringing youth from the region to the Netherlands for conferences and facilitating training and mediation sessions in the region.
