I’m an impact-driven social entrepreneur who believes in the world.
I’m the founder of YEP – Stimme der Jugend, a multi-awarded social start-up focussed on youth empowerment & participation. Why YEP: I fiercly believe, in order to tackle nowadays most pressing challenges, we need a strong civil society. And therefore we have to start early – with the youth, and create moments to experience: “My voice matters. I can make a change.”
Our vision: A world, where participation is not a privilege anymore.
What we do to achieve it: We create innovative opportunities for inclusive participation. Our Mission: To encourage, empower, enable young people to lead social change through participation. (democratic literacy, leadership & changemaker skills; social entrepreneurship education)
As YEP we see ourselves as the bridge organisation between policy makers, businesses, institutions and the youth – to create impactful, inclusive participation opportunities.
During my studies, I developed an Educational Design, “Students As Experts 4 Change”, which combines theatre pedagogy, digital tools and Wise Humanising Creativity and won several prizes. I became self-employed and worked with different companies, NGOs and institutions as an Educational Designer, promoting new ways of youth empowerment, before I founded YEP.
