About the Project

Time left to apply








“Social Entrepreneurship is a distinct form of entrepreneurship which aims to achieve a social purpose through the creation of social value. It aims to solve pressing problems, such as environmental protection, education, health services, poverty, energy, water resources, etc. Tackling the problem it undertakes is placed at the center of the activities of the social enterprise and its solution often comes with the application of inno-vative approaches.

Objectives of the project: 

  • To support the participating youth workers in understanding the concept and parameters of Social Entrepreneurship, as well as what the role of young people can be in this field.

  • Contribute to the development of capacities by the participants that will allow them to be able, using non-formal learning methods, to support the young people they work with, to be empowered and to acquire tools that will help them actively participate in the field of Social Entrepreneurship.

  • To introduce participants to new non-formal learning methods and tools, including digital tools, that will help them improve the services they offer to young people.

  • To present digital youth work tools that contribute to capacity building both through face2face activities and online

  • The development of the capacity of the participating organisations to support the young people with whom they work, and especially the young people with fewer opportunities, in the development of knowledge and skills that benefit them at a personal, social and pro-fessional level and can be adapted to the reality not only of Society in which they live, but also in wider Europe.
