Portraits of some of the YEPP Local Programme Sites give a fuller picture of how YEPP works on the ground. Information on five of the original YEPP sites is updated and some of the new sites are presented to show YEPP's versatility in three ways: expansion within a country; co-operation across frontiers and including Roma young people. An interim evaluation report demonstrated YEPP's success in increasing youth participation through e.g. youth councils, youth banks, the YEPP Transnational Youth Fund, local and regional advocacy and by involving them directly in the evaluation process. This evaluation also showed that the YEPP cross-sectoral ‘Local Support Group’ is a ‘best practice tool’ for promoting and sustaining cross-sectoral partnerships and mutually beneficial inter-generational cooperation. Advocacy has been effective in some sites leading to refocusing on doing something for young people to doing something with young people or to providing funds for initiatives by young people for young people. Despite many improvements achieving high quality evaluations still remained a challenge and seemed to depend on different levels of experience in evaluation across the sites thus identifying where additional support is needed. Overall YEPP continues to grow and demonstrates significant and sustainable positive change.
