Erasmus+ Incubator for Social Entrepreneurship and Social Tourism
Start date: Jun 1, 2016, End date: Dec 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Travel Beyond! – Erasmus+ incubator on Social Entrepreneurship and Social Tourism, is a 6-day training course focussed on project management and social entrepreneurship in EU youth work (Erasmus+). The main aim is to develop entrepreneurial skills for volunteers in youth work, enabling them to develop innovative approaches to cater for the needs of the young people working on local and European level.We are using the model of a social incubator to offer the participants a creative environment in which to develop their project ideas. All participants are young volunteers active in local youth work. During the preparation of the TC, they will develop project ideas to cater for their local needs. These project ideas will be developed during the training (incubation) into feasible EU project applications, including a strategy for co-financing from the private sector. In order to do so we are offering a series of workshops in which the participants will focus on different aspects of project development and entrepreneurship. Every day we will conclude the workshops with a “cooperative working space” in which the participants can work on their individual projects, implementing the learning outcomes of the workshops.We are mainly focussing on 2 key actions of Erasmus+ as to help the participants reflect on the subject if they are more of a youth worker (KA1 – educational mobility projects) or more of a social entrepreneur (KA2 – product or service development through youth initiatives), and will explore if the field of Social Tourism can bring in new perspectives. The concrete outcomes of this TC will be feasible project concepts developed by the participants, a dedicated website with all outcomes of the TC and a selection of training sessions uploaded on the SALTO toolbox so other youth organisations can set-up similar training activities.The training course is STEP2 from DBYN’s training structure. The TC brings together 28 young people from 12 EU member states (AT, BE, CZ, DE, ES, IT, MT, NL, PL, SK, SI, UK), taking place at the ‘Jeugdverblijfcentreum’ Don Bosco in Groot-Bijgaarden (BE). It is coordinated by DBYN, and hosted by our Belgian member organisation ‘Jeugddienst Don Bosco’.
