YPO - Our history and heritage In 1974, a group of local authorities recognised that by combining their buying demands for schools in their areas, they could achieve considerable efficiency savings. So YPO was born. Today, we’re still 100% publicly owned, but we work with even more organisations to achieve the same goal.
