YEPP I showed that YEPP works when fully implemented and the lessons learnt were built into YEPP II. Difficulties in implementing the research design were overcome by routinising the active participation of Local Teams in the evaluation process and simplifying it by focusing more on changes taking place on the ground. To improve partnerships with the public and private sectors, it was agreed to engage the public sector from the outset in selecting Local Programme Sites and requiring commitment to take on certain responsibilities e.g. giving staff time for coordination and evaluation. However, involving the private sector still remains a challenge. Transnational work was one of the successes of YEPP I but to engage all sites more fully this element was adapted to meet the needs of young people more meaningfully. Strategies to increase sustainability, youth participation and partnerships and create new funding channels were adopted. New approaches to impact more on public policy included expansion of YEPP by involving new partners and countries and adopting improved communication and advocacy strategies. The role of youth in pressing for change was seen as crucial and led young people to write their own ‘Golden Rules of Participation in Decision-making Processes’.
