Project Summary, Objectives and Results

Project Summary

Nowadays, every society deals with social problems, such as lack of integration, corruption, poverty and others. Although the nature of these issues is very diverse, one way to tackle them is through social entrepreneurship. It not only helps to create a workplace for those in need, but also results in potential benefits for all.Yet, the concept is still unknown to most of the youngsters, as well as youth workers (YWs). That is a missed opportunity. Youth’ ideas could be a key to progress regarding most of the social problems. Having this in mind, goal of the project is to grow future social entrepreneurs that could help their local communities, as well as a wider society.
