In particular, to analyse the implementation of the project against the standard 5 DAC evaluation criteria, namely: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability and impact; to trace a sample of direct beneficiaries of the projects and assess the impact the project they were involved in has had on them and to draw key lessons learnt from the YEP programme's operational implementation, in particular comparing the various methodologies followed by the 7 projects, and make recommendations for future initiatives aiming at addressing youth development through culture and sport.
