About Us

Who we are?

Young Professionals Network (YPN) is formally established by a group of young motivated professionals coming from different working backgrounds such as economic, social, media, IT, education, science and NGOs. The network has been created as a result of the challenges identified in Albania society such as: the need of youth in Albania to cooperate more to share skills and opportunities among each other and challenges faced on the labor market that indicate migration as well. Meanwhile the establishment of a union for young professionals has been one of the recommendations of several meetings and reports conducted for youth in Albania. Also, it is on line with some of the goals of the European Youth Strategy 2019-2027 specifically in Connecting EU with Youth; Equality of All Genders; Inclusive Societies; Information & Constructive Dialogue; Moving Rural Youth Forward; Quality Employment for All; Quality Learning; Space and Participation for All; Youth Organizations & European Programs contributing in this way to increase the quality of life of young professionals in Albania, reduce migration and positively influence the process of Albania's integration in the EU.
