Profiles of Young People

Simone from Albenga

A rare opportunity for young people in this country

Hello, my name is Simone and I’m 21. I play various musical instruments, which brought me to YEPP via the Musica Migrante festival. Over the years, my role in the festival grew from musician to planning and coordination.

This is a rare opportunity for young people here in Italy, where we usually only execute plans designed by adults. Working on the festival has given a great boost to my confidence in my capacities, it added value to my community and gave me a perspective of find a rewarding career.

Francesca from Albenga

An opportunity for young people to develop their skills

Hello, my name is Francesca, I’m 24 and enjoy living in my hometown (Albenga). I came to YEPP in 2007 and was immediately keen to be part of this new world of opportunities for young people. While studying tourism and cultural organisation, I was able to manage the EMN project “Let’s talk about us”. There, I developed my coordination, management and organisational skills, which I have been able to use professionally in a cultural agency I founded with a fellow member of the Local Support Group.
