About Us

What we do

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

Y-DAP is a city by city platform for parents & guardians to finding, book & register, also to pay for a place for their child/ young person. 

Y-DAP allows providers to create, share, provisions and events that fuel their passions and enrich their young peoples lives. From music, sport, IT, performing arts, study & explore and health & wellbeing to youth festivals, conferences and fundraisers ect...

All the above is delivered by trained young people 16 – 19 years of age (Y-DAP Reps) to gain and enhance new skills by training and managing the platform allowing them the ability to gaining work experiences and references to enter workforce. We also carry out Quality Assurance visit on the provision providers we are promoting; this is also delivered by young people trained to a Local Authority standard.

Finally, as we partner and promote activities and provision outside of the national curriculum, we also provide recordings of all your child’s rewards and certificates outside of the national curriculum, whilst you are using the Y-DAP platform and service.

All of this for a 98p per transaction (10% of all monies received are donated to provision providers to increase and enhance the provisions delivered and 20% for in-house training for our youth ambassadors )
