In Poland, Latvia, Lithuania this rate is relatively low but some other researches show that in these countries young people show a little entrepreneurship. These activities of the project are delivered by using modern technology ICT and well planned communicative activities of using English and native languages of the participants. The participants of the project also develop a great sense of need for continuing education through activities focused on entrepreneurship and development of interpersonal abilities of self-expressing and developing hidden skills. The project also delivers a new way of using innovative and student-centered pedagogical approaches aiming at revising and strengthening the professional profile of teachers and schools in local communities.
