In a more specific context addresses the needs of youth workers (both genders, 20 years+, some pf them face fewer opportunities). These youth workers of partner organizations (Estonia, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Spain, Malta, Romania, Turkey, Poland, Lithuania) mention quite often the need to be more developed in professional and personal level in order to be more effective in facing demands within their life and working field. Therefore we designed this project to foster the development of our youthworkers for being further competent on implementing inclusive practices and understand (and support he implementation) further the social entrepreneurship.In micro level through this project we want to provide means, methods, examples, practices and share ideas through joyful learning using non formal approaches in order to empower the youth workers with the development of their basic key competences and with the increase of their repertoire of practices. In macrolevel we seek for enhancing youthworkers acquiring tools and means in order to facilitate them to:-empower the implementation of successful practices for supporting, social inclusion and social entrepreneurship that are necessary within their organization;-promote Social Equity whenever is needed and-assist youngsters within their society to turn into more persistent in building their future and supporting their community in the framework of innovation and entrepreneurship.So,we have decided that it would be a good start for supporting our youthworkers to implement a 13 months project and deliver an 8 days TC (with 22 participants, in Larnaca,Cyprus 13-22/8/16) in order to propose and share ideas and solutions to the identified problem.
