This project was developed by the partners of the project when seeing that a lot of emphasis is given to entrepreneurial skills and assisting young people in gained these skills and competences. We identified a great needs for young people and organisations to obtain these skills and knowledge but as organisations we needed to develop new methods to teach these skills to young people. The combination of experience with young people from 12 countries, especially in identifying the common problems that young people face and the gaps in their knowledge about entrepreneurialism and also taking the experience of other organisations in the business fields the idea was created to develop a training course that would bring together youth workers, trainers and specialist in the field of business to develop new methodologies and activities that can be used in all the partner countries and other countries to help young people develop their entrepreneurial skills and help them start their own business.
The objectives of the project are to identify common problems and lack in the knowledge of young people in each of the partner countries regarding business and especially starting their own business and then to develop a variety of training courses and workshops that will help young people gained the needed skills to start their own business.
By doing this we will be able to help young people in all the partner countries to gain the needed skills to start their own business and simultaneously help combat unemployment in the EU.
The project will address youth unemployment and methods to help young people overcome these problems by creating their own jobs based on their skills and education allowing them to properly measure the risks of starting a business and also evaluating their ability to be self-employed. There is a great need for projects like this within the EU an especially so in countries that have high youth unemployment and we believe the outcomes of the project will positively affect many young people in making the correct choices and assist them in starting their own careers and therefore overcoming unemployment.
Taking into account how the EU is a common market, we will explore, through intercultural dialogue, the trends and needs of a unified yet distinct EU. We will see how one market influences the other, and more specifically how culture can influence the success or failure of a business. We will see elements of active citizenship and how these affect our rights as citizens of the EU. We will see how inclusion, or exclusion affects the chances of young people to succeed in a very demanding labour market. We will give focus on EU tools available to young entrepreneurs to give them the push needed to start their own business or to give them the skills and competences to make the right decisions regarding their careers and their future.
The idea of the training course is to develop a manual as a final result with tips and guides on how to start a business that can be used by all young people interested in starting their own business.
