United in Social Entrepreneurship

Activity Type: Youth Exchange
Place: Ortelle, Italy
When: 10/05/2022-19/05/2022
Number of Participants: 30


GEM report 2019/ 20 shows that perceived opportunities in EU and Eastern Partnership countries range between 30% – 60%, but the established business ownership rate is a maximum of 13%. There is a big gap. Partner organizations studied that young people see these opportunities; They have the motivation to build social enterprises, but issues like fear of failure, lack of awareness, and not enough competencies – hold them back.

The objectives were to:
  • Raise awareness and the sense of social entrepreneurship among young people.
  • Strengthen young people’s sense of initiative in the social field in order to support their communities.
  • Equip participants with the necessary competencies needed for putting their initiatives into practice.
  • Raise participants’ level of confidence and motivate them to kick-start social enterprises.
  • Let participants overcome the fear of failure and improve their positive attitude towards the labor market.
  • Foster a transnational exchange of ideas and transmission of competencies and to see the added value of diversity.
