Greetings from Ytterjarna as we transition into what feels like spring. The snow has melted and the sun is shinning. With the Yippies away on internships, the organizing team has been reviewing...
Greetings from sunny Scotland that feels a little more like fall than winter. Small flowers are growing and trees still blossoming, yet we were lucky to have a few days of snow for sledding...

With: YIP Participants
Support YIP financially
“ This is the new culture of money. The intersection of nature, culture and cosmos; whereby the human imagination is lifted out of the despair that I don’t have to I have enough to give. And if I have enough to give, I have enough to share; and if we have enough to share we have a new reality.”
- Orland Bishop
YIP does not receive any public or government funding and therefore depends on individuals and organizations that understand and support the potential of this initiative and join with their contribution, partnership. In this way, YIP is the result of many people, organizations and initiatives contributing part of their efforts to the program, and the program connecting these parts into a community effort. This kind of community supported education has been what we set out to do, and is what is still happening.
It is a great gift to know that we have partners not only in the practical and educational matters, but also partners who are willing to support with financial means to create free spaces in which new initiative can develop.
We welcome and thank you for your trust and support expressed in your donation and look forwards to keep giving youth a chance to explore their fullest potential and take initiative towards a better world. You can donate to the YIP Program to participate and support the program in its intention to be inclusive and diverse. This helps to cover staff, material and other expenses or to the “Diversity Fund” that support participants who can’t pay the full tuiton fee.
Despite its international character, the YIP participant group often lacks representation from different socio-economic demographics. Because the content of YIP often focusses on global challenges as well as an individual capability to take on multiple perspectives, it is essential that there is a diverse range of backgrounds, cultures, and experiences present at YIP.
In order to meet this need, the YIP Diversity Fund strives to support 2-4 participants who would benefit and thrive from attending this type of education but otherwise wouldn’t be able to.
Be an internship host
Do you have a social entrepreneurial organisation/business/initiative that’s aligned with the mission of YIP to create positive change in the world?
A place where YIP participants can learn on a practical level how it is to run a social entrepreneurial organisation/business/initiative and find their way to share their skills with you and the world?
Are you willing to host young people (a group of 3 – 7 participants) from all around the world for 6 – 8 weeks to create together a learning journey where there is space to follow their personal intention, group intentions and support the needs of your place?
Are you willing to dive into skype calls and e-mail conversations with the YIP participants to prepare their Internship?
As an Internship host we deeply appreciate your support for the YIP participants. There is unfortunately no financial support we can offer you as an internship host. We hope that working with the YIP participants is giving you, the organisation and the world something back that is needed on an experienced level.
If this makes you excited, please feel free to contact ([email protected]) us with your Internship host proposal. Thank you.
