About Us

What we do

The concept of Y-DAP designed by young people to support the development of young people.

About us

We are a company bringing all the elements of youth organisations together, to form a hub for introducing, refreshing and enhancing young people’s skills and lives globally. We are a legacy building company, which markets ourselves as being ‘tech-savvy’ and fully focused on creating strategic approaches to our work.

We aim to bring the youth industry forward into a new era for young people.

We are moving and embarking on a new era.To support young people through this process, we run a bridging and supporting development service. Bridging and exposing a better understanding of the Youth Industry, as well as providing vital courses and experiences that allow the development of the mindset for youth entrepreneurship1, all done in real-time (as interpretation and exposure cannot be taught, but can be encouraged and allowed to develop once experienced). Young people also in the new global economy will need to be more aware of the opportunities and competition from other countries in-terms of education, employment and business2

The Youth Industry and industry 4.0

The youth industry is outdated, in terms of :-

• Systems and process

• Marketing

• Registration booking, monitor and evaluate

• and program delivery


The youth industry and corporates could do well from partnerships, but the youth industry does not function nor is unified enough to call its self an industry and due to this it brings no value for corporate partners to wish to invest nor see the potential of them both having the same clientele.

Why Chose Us?

Built by Young People for Young People

Young people (Y-DAP reps) are at the heart of our team. We expose, train and enhance young people by providing as many opportunities as possible as well as making the youth industry more sustainable. Hence why, some of the Y-DAP team are made up of young people (Y-DAP Reps). They support the design, manage and maintain the Y-DAP platform, also the Quality Assurance. Y-DAP champions talented young people into careers and can even help incubate and develop their own projects, with a strong focus and edifice on industry 4.0
