The overall objective of the project is to contribute to the encouragement of entrepreneurship, youth cooperation, reduction of unemployment and young people migration for promotion sustainable economic development in Kaunas and Minsk regions. Expected Results: The project will strengthen capacities of youth Entrepreneurship Encouragement Frameworks in Kaunas and Minsk regions through elaboration of an entrepreneurship encouragement program for young people supported by Guides for trainers and youth and enhance the skills of youth entrepreneurship trainers. The project also aims to improve young peoples abilities and knowledge of entrepreneurship in Minsk and Kaunas through organising a youth entrepreneurship camp and trainings under the elaborated program.
