Overview

Spanning eight European countries, the Youth Empowerment Partnership Programme (YEPP) aims to enable young people in disadvantaged communities by involving them in new decision-making processes that span the public, private, and independent sectors. Youth Community and Empowerment in Europe explains the theory behind this unique collaborative program funded by a consortium of European and American foundations. Tracing the program’s development and outcomes across its ten years of existence, the authors extract lessons that can improve future policy and evaluation strategies.
