Put It in Action
Start date: Jan 1, 2015, End date: Sep 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Today social entrepreneurship is becoming one of the effective and innovative methods to solve the social problems. It gives the opportunity to deal with the problematic issue in a creative way that in turn helps to involve into social sphere more people, create alternative jobs and income. In light of economic changes, globalisation and requirements on labour market (the moving from employment to employability) entrepreneurship itself is becoming popular issue among young people as a lot of them are struggling to find job or having their own income. As a result of these young people are searching alternative way which turns to be running of their own enterprises. In order to be able to do this they need some certain skills and knowledge like knowledge business sector, understanding financial risk and management, having soft skills (communication, leadership, management etc). Moreover, 90 % of all startups are failing which stops young people to put their ideas in action. At this point NGOs should provide young people with information and help on the topic of social entrepreneurship and involve them into the issue. But there are not many organisations which are competitive enough in this field. That training course “Put It in Action” aims to develop participants’ skills on social entrepreneurship, financial management, creativity, soft skills, strategic planning of the ideas. It is designed for youth workers and youth leaders to explore methods of working with youth on the topic of social entrepreneurship and practical skills on running the social enterprise with their organisations. The whole project is built up and developed in accordance with the objectives and the priorities of the Erasmus+ Programme.
