Aims & objectives

Design your enterprise was a project addressing the increasing problem of youth unemployment in Europe and the need of learning the social entrepreneurial skill set in order to enable young people to act on their own and adapt to the continuously changing labour market. The idea behind was to create a training which would help youth workers to get an experience in this field and then supporting unemployed young people they are connected to to learn as well. The training was there to provide them an opportunity to train such a mind set and to grow their own ideas.

Your tasks and responsibilities within the team

As one of the trainers, I designed the program from the very beginning and during the TC adjusted it according to participants needs. I was cooperating with another trainer while delivering parts of TC (as for example Communication styles or Social enterprise planning), arranging my part of logistics (e.g. Living library or social enterprise visit) and writing the final report of this TC.

I worked on this training for 9 days as a full time trainer.
