What is YPN?

The Youth Production Network is a worldwide organisation set up in 2010 to help young people interested in live event production gain valuable work experience and on site training. YPN provides the vital link between a training environment and live onsite event production.

Since it’s conception, YPN has spread across the globe, with offices based in London (UK) and Soweto (SA), and is now connected to over 45 countries. YPN offers a unique crew chief system, where all work experience roles are managed on site by a YPN crew chief, who is able to look after and train them directly. The YPN crew chiefs are experienced production crew that have graduated through the YPN work experience roles. They, in turn, are supported and mentored by current and active high level production specialists.

As a result, YPN core training is directly positioned onsite within the production industry and maintained at world class production standards.
