Young Modern Performers (YMPs) are a new social class of around 10% within the  European population. The emergence of YMPs is a phenomenon that has not been acknowledged by development education yet. YMPs are the up-and-coming, unconventional professional elite (also called the “new upper class”). YMPs are between 25 and 35 years of age. The group consists mostly of young professionals within the first years of their careers but also recent graduates and senior students of high level universities. Many women are among YMPs, though slightly more men can be found in this social group.
