Programs

The Foundation's programs are the result of close collaboration with experts in the field. These specialists are responsible for evolving and enriching the programs each year through new projects that match the needs of young people. Complementary to the actions of the DYP, these six programs contribute to the wellbeing, development, and fulfillment of DYP youths. It's about the little extras, the moments of amazement, and memorable encounters that can transform their life’s journey, giving them the desire and the confidence they need to broaden their field of possibilities.
