The team of Zavod Ypsilon wishes their program, into which all high school and university students between 15 and 30 are encouraged to join, would be revived throughout entire Slovenia.

In the evening of 19 March 2013, an interesting Round Table was held in Maribor, at which mentors and mentees discussed and explained the relations between mentors and mentees and what are the positive gains for both sides.
