A Step Forward in Youth Employment: Enriching Regular Youth Work with Quality Entrepreneurial Learning

Training Course

1-9 November 2016 | Split, Croatia

The aim of the project is to empower youth workers to enrich non-formal education/youth work activities with quality entrepreneurial education and learning.
This is an 8-day training course. It will be held in a youth hostel in Split, from 1 - 9 November, 2016. The project will gather 30 participants, trainers and staff from 12 organisations and countries (Croatia, FYR Macedonia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Spain, France, Greece, Portugal, Bulgaria, Italy, Romania and Slovenia). This project focuses on trying to bring added value to youth work for entrepreneurship. We would like to stress that entrepreneurial learning (EL) in youth work is more than seeing entrepreneurship as a practice and learning about business plans. It is rather a mind-set or approach leading to a behavioural transformation towards personal and professional development. While youth work mainly uses learning-by-doing and experiential learning activities, for quality EL this could and should be further enriched with different kinds of practices and learning approaches along a continuum, with the help of Youthpass. The aim of the project is to empower youth workers to enrich non-formal education (NFE) / youth work activities with quality entrepreneurial education and learning, in order to address change in young mind-sets and to inspire a new set of values inclined towards risk taking, venture creation and self-development. Objectives of the project are to: • Equip youth workers with training in competence-based EL to help them implement, develop and multiply the effect of EL. • Increase the number of learning-by-doing activities and hands-on entrepreneurial practices in youth work • Emphasise the attitudetowards EL in youth work, by developing a youth entrepreneurial culture with the support of the Erasmus+ programme. • Create entrepreneur-friendly learning environments in our youth work • Support youth work practices, like youth initiatives, with resources and structures to support young people in their implementation process.
