Weekend Politics Academy
The Weekend Politics Academy by Harvard Student Agencies is a policy hackathon founded with the purpose of teaching students the process of coming up with actionable policy recommendations. WPA aims to expose high school students to a practical political education early on in their academic careers. Our model is based on hands-on learning where students are faced with the same challenges high-level political decision makers face everyday. At the end of the program, the groups will present their solutions to the policy challenge in the form of a policy pitch contest and the program ends with an award ceremony where the top policies will receive awards.
