Youth Professionals in Local Development (YPLD)
In July 2012, IDEAS and YPLD created an official partnership to begin working together on International campaigns to engage youth in capacity building, youth empowerment and various sustainability programs.
The Young Professionals in Local Development (YPLD) network of over 30 nation representatives is envisaged as being a know-how transfer platform between young and experienced professionals in all fields of expertise that relate to international and local development.
YPLD is a network of professionals aged between 18 and 40 involved in both international and local development through the nature of their education and professional activity. Due to their worldwide partners (currently they have partners in the USA, Asia, Europe and Africa in over 30 countries) and their current search for regional and country representatives allowed us to have a global reach for our actions.
Keep a look out for more programs with YPLD in the near future!
