Fostering entrepreneurial dynamics among young people, leaders, trainers, youth workers, project multipliers etc from varied socio-cultural backgrounds aligns with European Union priority of creating employment for young people with fewer advantage and also encouraging economic mobility within EU and neighbouring EU countries, by exposing them to entrepreneurial and business opportunities; entrepreneurial skills, digital entrepreneurship, setting up self employed businesses, social enterprises, e-designs/graphics, Photography/film/video production, Online/e-Trading/buying and selling opportunities by exploring sites such as e-bay, amazon.com, e-sourcing, online bidding and e-sourcing and drop shipping skills, supplying to government, European Union and buying items/products from producers
'TEP' will showcase the importance of networking to business opportunities through the encouragement of entrepreneurial activities among youth workers, trainers etc with fewer opportunities, this will on a long run make them independent, build their self confidence and esteem, take them of welfare packages and invariably contribute to the economy of their respective countries.

Reflecting on previous youth projects, we have come to appreciate the impact of inclusivity in project devolment and it's impact on social issues, community concerns such as youth unemployment, minority, exclusion, inclusion of disaffected young people, community cohesion, marginalization, self determination, equality, human rights etc.
''TEP' Project Objectives aligns with erasmus+ programmes in several ways most importantly by:
• Adopting social economic activities in reducing economic isolation, exclusion and individualism; by involving migrant, Roma youths and other young people in partner countries in non-formal learning environment. (this aligns with Erasmus+ priorities of tackling the issue of youth unemployment as well as stimulating unemployed young people's mobility and active participation in society there by giving access to unemployed young people to all the opportunities that it offers
• Addressing issues of poverty and marginalization and encouraging young people's awareness and commitment to tackling these issues for a more inclusive society.
In 'TEP' project context, special emphasis is placed in particular on the inclusion of young migrants, disabled young people, and disadvantaged youths
•'TEP' equally stimulates young people, youth workers, leaders, trainers and project multiplier's spirit of initiative, creativity and entrepreneurship, employability, in particular through youth initiatives.
• 'TEP' also promotes healthy behaviours through indoor sporting activities as means to encourage healthy lifestyles as well as foster social inclusion and active participation of young people, especially migrant youths in the society (aligns with Erasmus+ annual priorities)
'TEP' productively engage youth workers, trainers, leaders, project multipliers and young people by providing something to do, where to go for them to build rapport, friendliness, cultural harmony and bonding (encouraging participation of young people in programme design etc)
• 'TEP' challenged the group with experiences, to use their competencies to develop a peer entrepreneurial mentoring role to support other groups of young people in the community this aligns with Erasmus+ priorities of promotion of social and personal development of young people.
