Empowering Youth Entrepreneurship
Through project “Empowering Youth Entrepreneurship” we are seeking to provide opportunities for youth workers and young people to gain valuable skills for needed for work on their personal development, with emphasis on education, self-education opportunities creation and sharing skills with their peers.

During the training course participants will firstly have a chance to share present realities and situations in their countries regarding entrepreneurship and self-employment. Afterwards, they will be presented with role of non-formal education in entrepreneurship and hear good example and practices of already existing systems. In the middle part, participants will get an opportunity to work on developing of their entrepreneurial skills and learn how to develop business idea and business plan, how to do self-reflection, how to prepare project proposal and apply for different grants , and all of these through creative and innovative methods and approaches.

They will be introduced to cycle of project, discuss challenges and recommendations for strategic thinking and youth work approaches in their future activities, learn how to set aims and objectives and finally develop specific 90 minutes long workshops and activities (based on non-formal education methods and approaches) that will be
organized for all interested youth in local communities.
