Get Ready for Social Entrepreneurship

Training Course

9-14 June 2014 | Predeal (Carpathian Mountains), Romania

Social entrepreneurship is an innovative way of civic engagement and participation, as it offers a chance to enter the public sphere and the labour market at the same time. It is an important European priority that the Erasmus+ programme fully supports.
Building on our experiences in fostering various forms of participation in democratic and social life and in working on entrepreneurial learning, the Romanian, Belgian-FR, Hungarian and Swedish Erasmus+: Youth in Action NAs, in co-operation with SALTO-YOUTH Participation will organize a training course on social entrepreneurship. It will be a learning by doing activity that will give participants the chance to, inter alia, present their project ideas and improve them by sharing them with the others. Applicants should therefore already briefly specify in the application form their concrete project idea or plan. Aims: • To inform and raise awareness among participants about the characteristics, benefits, values and factors for success of social entrepreneurship; • To offer a holistic multi-stakeholder collaborative approach to social entrepreneurship. The main objectives of the training course are: • To introduce participants to the social business model and the values that underpin this type of enterprise; • To share national resources and inform about European ones (entrepreneurship education and learning, access to different types of funding, partnerships, networks etc.) useful for social enterprise creation and sustainability; • To introduce participants to the new funding opportunities offered by the E+ programme under “Strategic Partnerships” projects; • To offer innovative methodology to develop a sustainable social enterprise model integrating a PBL (project-based learning) approach to work on entrepreneurial competences; • To inspire participants by bringing role models (entrepreneurship success stories) – e.g. former “Youth in Action” beneficiaries that set up sustainable social enterprises, full of passion, to talk about how they managed to create and continue their business. Target group Practitioners coming from various fields working with young people with a diverse background (youth workers, youth leaders, coaches, young social entrepreneurs, formal education professionals, employment counselors, etc.) with an interest in social entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial learning. They should be willing to run or be partners in a project developed during the TC and disseminate the knowledge acquired in their organizations. (Note for NAs: This project if financed by TCA budget)
