The YES project helps Youth Workers very practically to learn in practice entrepreneurship with all modern and digital tools, within their Venture Achievement Pathway (VAP), that is their business project idea/plan.
Youth Workers will be trained by trainers that are entrepreneurs themselves nowadays and share their current knowledge and experience with them. The intellectual output will be that youth workers have developed the basic competencies and confidence to create their own business and know how to use the practical tools for that.
This programme has been already tested in more than 30 education and training organizations providers (ETP) in The Netherlands and is based on the “effectuation” methodology.
The target groups of this programme are young people aged between 18 and 25 years old who are facing learning difficulties from lack of motivation to educational capabilities limitations.
The most important YES project task is:
- provide the Trainers the capacity to teach our methodology to Youth workers;
- give the Youth workers the possibility to create their own businesses;
- stimulate the use of Digital Skills on XXI Century companies;
- create an International Network of Trainers in Entrepreneurship for youth workers.
YES project partners:
