YEP

The main goal of the Young Expert Programmes (YEP), consisting of YEP Water, YEP Agrofood, YEP Energy and YEP Tailor-made, is to offer young Dutch and local professionals the opportunity to take their first steps in an international environment. They are employed through Dutch organisations in a number of eligible countries. The programmes aim to rejuvenate the water, agrofood and renewable energy sectors and ensure the continued availability of expertise for these sectors.

The YEP Programmes are carried out jointly by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP), the Food & Business Knowledge Platform and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency.

YEP mentor's day


Twice a year, the YEP Programme Bureau invites all mentors of Young Experts from recent batches to inform them about their tasks as a mentor of a Young Expert within YEP Programmes. Besides this, we also focus on the YEP philosophy on training of young professionals, the personal development plans of Young Experts, the MBTI personality types and coaching of the Young Experts. In addition, this day is highly appreciated because of the networking between YEP partners!

 

On February 15th, the mentor's day was organised at YEP partner Mott MacDonald in Arnhem, the Netherlands. During this event, Just Business announced to coordinate an excursion to the Rotterdam harbour for their own local Young Expert as part of their own introduction programme, and invited all other new local Young Experts to join! We wish all of them an inspiring day!
