Youth Social Entrepreneurship in Lithuanian and Belarus border region (Youth social entrepreneurship)
Start date: Sep 14, 2011, End date: Dec 13, 2012 PROJECT  FINISHED 

Across Europe the unemployment rate among young people under 25 remains high. Entrepreneurship learning adresses the challenge of youth unemployment thus meeting the goals of Lisbon strategy for Growth and Jobs. However, in Lithuania and Belarus social entrepreneurship is not considered a part of youth education and training in formal institutions. Therefore, young people do not posses attitude, skills and knowledge to recognize opportunities for creating social adn economic added value and undertake actions targeted to use these opportunities. The project aims to promote youth social entrepreneurship and creativity and encourage youth employment in the Lithuanian and Belarusian border regions as an asset for local economic development and territorial competitiveness. Expected Results: The project will raise the level of personal and social entrepreneurship skills of young people and increase capacities of youth consultants through development of common training course based on partner practice and provision of advisory services. The International conference conducted in frame of the project will raise awareness and fostered positive attitude towards youth social entrepreneurship among the communities of the participating regions.
