Pack a Backpack Drive

Summer is here, but school is right around the corner!
This July, Youth Policy Institute (YPI) is collecting school supplies for students across Los Angeles.
Help equip students with the tools they need to start the school year off right.

There are a few ways to get involved in our back-to-school efforts:

Host a Backpack Drive

  • Purchase supplies via YPI’s Amazon wishlists or purchase through your preferred school supply store – we encourage sets of 5, 10 and 24 backpacks
  • Host an event at your office to pack the backpacks (send photos to to be featured on our social media!)
  • Ship or drop off backpacks at YPI HQ

Drop Off Supplies

Drop off supplies to our backpack boxes in the lobbies of these locations: 6464 Sunset Blvd. or 6565 Sunset Blvd.

Make an online donation for YPI to purchase school supplies.
