Poverty and social exclusion, aging population, youth unemployment, increasing division between rich and poor, environmental issues and a migrant crisis are the main societal challenges what Europe faces today. Without help of NGOs many of these problems will be difficult to solve. At the same time financial problems force a growing number of organisations search for new ways to be sustainable. One of the most effective ways is social entrepreneurship, what also opens to NGOs new direction of their work – they can involve young people including those with fewer opportunities into social entrepreneurship, help young people to confront the unemployment through running their own enterprises as well as to get needed competencies for funding a job.

The training for trainers on social entrepreneurship “ToT-Developing entrepreneurial skills at young people and organisations” will gather 29 trainers and youth workers from Programme and Partner countries. The main objectives of the project are: 1) To get participants familiar with the concept of social entrepreneurship and the main competences relevant for social entrepreneurship. 2) To develop the essential entrepreneurial skills at trainers. 3) To provide trainers with the tools and methods on how to develop the idea of a social enterprise, open and run it. 4) To equip trainers with the tools and methods for trainings and projects on social entrepreneurship for NGOs and young people including those with fewer opportunities and how to develop their entrepreneurial skills. 5) To promote diversity, intercultural and inter-religious dialogue, common values of freedom, tolerance and respect of human rights. 6) To explore practical ways of reaching young people with fewer opportunities including refuges, asylum seekers and migrants, promoting fundamental values of our society among them and enhancing media literacy, critical thinking and sense of initiative of young people.
