YEPP EUROPE is a transnational support agency for local communities who work in line with “YEPP” approach and methodology developed within the 10-year old foundation-led Youth Empowerment Partnership Programme (YEPP) to achieve youth and community empowerment. It provides coordination and support for local and transnational activities of the YEPP Community Network. YEPP EUROPE is located in the Institute for Community Education (ICE).
We work for youth and community empowerment in disadvantaged areas across Europe, promote participation of young people and local stakeholders in decision-making processes and foster active citizenship. We recognize young people as actors of social change and strive to make their voices heard.
The ‘Institute Heritage Studies’ (IHS) has made the investigation and sustainable implementation of the heritage of humanity its mission.
