The main aim of this training is to empower participants to develop their competences promoting and supporting Youth Entrepreneurship in social field. This will be done by experiencing the steps of putting ideas into concrete actions plans during TC.
“From Idea to Action 3” is an international training course which aims to empower participants and familiarize them with tools and steps to put social entrepreneurial ideas into a concrete action plan for their implementation. In this TC, the participants will: • Learn how to put an idea into practice (by using concepts and tools such as a project plan, marketing and visibility, business analysis (for example SWOT), financing and funding. • Work on one concrete idea (social entrepreneur, creation of organizations, Erasmus + projects….) and reflect about the next steps to be undertaken to make it a reality. • Get the space and support of participants and trainers to have a safe atmosphere to test and improve ideas. We aim to bring some basic business concepts into non-formal learning, and adapt these concepts into simple and ready to use tools for developing entrepreneurial social projects. In this training course we will implement concrete tools which can be used by themselves to test and implement the ideas of the participants/and serve as a multiplier in their organizations or local communities, being able to give advice and support to other young social entrepreneurs about the process of realizing ideas, that they would have experienced by themselves in the Training Course.
