The Youth Citizen Entrepreneurship Competition is an activity within the framework of the UNESCO Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

YEPP INTERNATIONAL RESOURCE CENTRE

The “YEPP” approach and methodology was developed by the Youth Empowerment Partnership Programme (2001-2011), which was an initiative of a group of European and US foundations to find ways to empower young people at risk of social exclusion in communities across Europe that offered little to no opportunities.
“YEPP” was implemented and evaluated by the International Academy for Innovative Pedagogy, Psychology, and Economics (INA) gGmbH/Institute for Community Education (ICE), a non-profit organization at the Free University of Berlin, Germany.
The Youth Empowerment Partnership Programme adopted an innovative approach that brought together foundations, municipalities, and local representatives, whom we referred to as actors, to address complex social challenges related to young people and to promote civic participation in disadvantaged communities across Europe. The Youth Empowerment Partnership Programme tackled youth-related issues with young people – not for them.
