Entrepreneurship & Employability

ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND EMPLOYABILITY
Entrepreneurship & Employability is one of our core directions, dealing with young people’s capacity of writing a project idea, managing risks, putting their ideas into action, finding the appropriate funding and stakeholders to support their initiative and providing tools for youth and youth workers in order to increase their employability and competitiveness on the labour market.

Our highlights are:
  • Training youth and youth workers in using design thinking as part of entrepreneurial education methodology;
  • Promoting innovative entrepreneurial types: green, social and digital entrepreneurship;
  • Using social media tools to increase youth employability;
  • Developing youth creativity and cultural expression skills;
