About YPPP


The Youth Political Participation Program (YPPP) celebrates and supports political learning and engagement among young people through research, public service and education, driven by the potential impact of the “Millennial Generation” on American democracy.


Elizabeth Matto is an Assistant Research Professor at the Eagleton Institute of Politics and the Director of the Institute’s Youth Political Participation Program (YPPP). She earned her doctorate in American Politics at George Washington University and, prior to her work at Eagleton, taught a variety of courses at Princeton University, Temple University, and George Washington University.


YPPP’s work is driven by Rutgers students. Students work with the program as interns, students, research assistants, staff, and even as volunteers. Meet them here.
