The youth mobility project CEO – Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities was developed in order to create more awareness towards employability and how to become more entrepreneurial in finding job opportunities and filling in the life for disadvantaged youngsters coming from rural areas. The project is designed to find possibilities and to create more opportunities and insight for the young participants regarding their education, leisure time, volunteering and future career.
32 young people and 7 leaders from seven countries were invited to participate in a youth exchange activity: Bulgaria, Lithuania, Croatia, Italy, Portugal, Macedonia and The Netherlands. The activity lasted for twelve days in Hunzepark, Gasselternijveen, The Netherlands working on the theme employability & entrepreneurship’ based on experiential and non-formal learning, using the tools video, photography, role play activities and simulation games.
The young participants worked on their chances and opportunities regarding entrepreneurship which can be implemented in their own surroundings, possibilities for creating an own business, organisation, personal perspective, education and involvement in the community. The youngsters created more awareness towards these items and each person reflected on how it can be implemented in their own environment and local surrounding. The youngsters exchanged on how to organise an own activity and project which they executed at the end of the exchange programme with creating an own project.
The priority of the project was to create awareness about the own possibilities concerning entrepreneurship, what the options and possibilities are and what they can gain for themselves.
