The project’s main objective is to train youth workers in developing young people’s initiative and entrepreneurship skills, thus developing their youth work competences, increasing quality of their work and strengthening the capacity of their organisations.

- Developing an informal network of Entrepreneurship Champions helping young people to take initiative in their lives and to grow their own ideas into action
The project, including two training courses, will involve a total of 70 participants (35 learners for each course) and 10 staff.
