This project tends to make young people active contributors in social and economical environment in their local community. It empower youth workers and through them young people in local communities to think for possibilities of new initiatives, creative ideas, to become self-employed and engage in a productive livelihood. Opening a successful business/enterprise/social enterprise requires an awareness of one’s knowledge, skills, abilities, attitudes, values and preferences. That’s why we chose by inviting youth workers from different corners of Europe to consider their own strengths and weaknesses in these areas, so that they develop a clear sense of themselves, learn new information and multiply it to young people in local level. All participants will be encouraged to perceive themselves as the actors responsible for their own lives with a direct impact and influence on young people they work with in local communities. Learners are then guided through different steps in getting information about entrepreneurship education and making the link from idea to undertake concrete actions. At each step, the learner is encouraged to discover how his or her skills may be utilized to cater to a need in the community. While encouraging independent thought, creativity and initiative, the events will demonstrates the benefits of collaborative work including different actors, institution, NGO-s, young people.
