The main aim of “Teaching Young Entrepreneurs - if not you then who?” is to prepare youth workers/teachers to work with the "Young Entrepreneurs - If not you then who" methodology and to help young people they are working with, to find their way as entrepreneurs.
Through this training course, we want to work on the following objectives:

2. To provide youth workers and teachers with a new entrepreneurship education methodology, created by the "Young Entrepreneurs - If not you then who" team within the KA2 Strategic Partnership project.
3. To increase the facilitation skills of youth workers/teachers.
4. To provide a complementary, non-formal methodology, that can also be used in formal education.

Training methods used & main activities

This non-formal education training course will be characterized by highly participatory, interactive and experiential methods. The participants will have a chance to participate in sessions of entrepreneurial education and implement them by themselves, gather feedback from other participants, reflect on their facilitation skills and improve them.

Outcomes of the activity

The "Young Entrepreneurs - If not you then who?" methodology has been designed, so that the participants:
- get to know the methodology and the ideology (Economy for the Common Good) that it is based on;
- get familiar with all sessions (20 in total) from the view as participant and also from the role as facilitator:
- create alternative options/ideas for how to implement each session;
- get highly motivated to put the methodology into practice, once back in their countries.
