EVE’s activities seek to contribute to the solution or relief the problems concerning the readiness of formal education system to develop personality able to be initiative, assess and try our different possibilities, contemplate critically. Mostly, the innovative coaching tools used for achieving mentioned goals are used in non-formal education, in NGOs and there is no worked out methodology how these methods could be adapted for VET system and practice. The co-operation among institutions of VET and NGOs purposely working with issues of fostering youth entrepreneurship and creativity is still of fairly low volume. The EVE seeks to contribute to the encouragement of this co-operation which is emphasized in different EU documents such as Council Conclusions, 22/05/2008 or Bordeaux Communique, 26/11/2008.The aims of the EVE project are: 1.
