Information sessions

Is your organisation interested in employing enthusiastic and motivated Young Experts in the field of water, agrofood or renewable energy? Find out if YEP Programmes is the right fit for your organisation during our online information sessions.

YEP Programmes’ mission is to build expertise in the field of water, agrofood and renewable energy through Dutch organisations operating in developing countries and emerging markets while creating a young, refreshing and inspiring international network. To achieve this, YEP Programmes offers financial support to Dutch organisations employing Young Experts for the realisation of international development aid and trade projects. These Young Experts can be either Dutch or native from the country where projects are conducted. The deployment of Young Experts is jointly financed by the organisations and the subsidy funds of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs that manages YEP Programmes. During the YEP journey, Young Experts receive intensive training and coaching as part of the learning agility approach.
