21-26 October 2013 | Italy

“Get Ready for Youth Entrepreneurship”: Seminar for youth workers on youth entrepreneurial Learning.Co-organised with the Italian National Agency and the support of Swedish and Hungarian National Agencies. Deadline for applying:16 June 2013
SALTO-YOUTH Participation, the Italian, the Swedish and the Hungarian National Agencies have decided to set up a seminar addressed to youth workers that can play a role in raising awareness in young people about the entrepreneurial potential of their “Youth in Action” projects. Youth workers participating in the seminar will discuss and explore ways to help young people to implement and follow-up their “Youth in Action” projects, in particular youth initiatives, and set up their own businesses and ventures (e.g. social enterprise, NGO). The seminar will be based on an exchange of good practices among ex-beneficiaries of youth projects, serving as role models/coaches by sharing their experiences with future and present beneficiaries. Concrete ways (practical examples, methods, tools, tips, etc.) in which youth workers can support/coach young people towards creating their own job/business will be explored and identified during the seminar. In order to facilitate the links and exchanges with other sectors, formal education and business representatives will be invited to the seminar. Aims: • To help youth workers/youth leaders to raise awareness in young people about the entrepreneurial potential of their YiA projects (in particular youth initiatives). • To support youth workers to develop their understanding and competences in the field of entrepreneurial learning. Objectives: • To clarify the meaning of youth entrepreneurship in different culture and countries; • To identify potential benefits of entrepreneurial learning in the Youth in Action Programme; • To present case studies with entrepreneurial follow-up measures in “Youth in Action” projects; • To share tools and methods to encourage and prepare young people to undertake entrepreneurial activities as a follow-up of their “Youth in Action” project; • To identify resources and challenges needed to implement entrepreneurial initiatives; • To offer space for exchanging experiences and good practices in the field of entrepreneurial learning among players in three fields: non-formal education, formal education and business; • To encourage international and cross-sectorial partnerships and identify resources for future cooperation. Duration and date: The seminar will be hosted in Italy from the 21st to 26th of October 2013. Target group: The participants should be coaches/youth workers/youth leaders representing an organisation or a youth group. They should be: • Over 18; • Being able to actively communicate in English (working language); • Experienced in supporting young people in implementing Youth in Action projects; • Have an interest/experience in developing entrepreneurial learning in their youth work practices; • Ready to contribute with a method/tool/best practice on entrepreneurial learning; • Willing to apply and disseminate the knowledge acquired during the seminar. The size of the group is 30 participants max. Procedure: If you are interested, please apply online by the 16th of June 2013.
