The added value of Social Entrepreneurship in Youth Work (SEYW)
Projects / Ongoing
Period: February 2019 - January 2021
Contacts: Daniela Ilieva
The SEYW project is aimed at creating synergies between the social entrepreneurship and youth work. The youth work needs constant innovation and entrepreneurial attitude to face the challenges that European youth nowadays meet. Youth workers need to be ready to answer to these challenges in order not to let youth down and to offer them support and inspiration for becoming changemakers.
The project is designed
to give the opportunity to youth workers to acquire appropriate knowledge on
social entrepreneurship, to compare the different perceptions of the meaning of
social entrepreneurship in Europe referring also to the different legislations
in force and to share good practices of social entrepreneurship methodologies
that could be taken as examples and replicated.
The project’s target
groups are youth workers active in the field, interested and motivated in
acquiring and willing to share innovative methods to support youth development,
and staff of the organizations partners of the project.
The Project Coordinator – TDM 2000 is joining efforts with the Project Partners - Co-Actions (France), Art Square Luxembourg asbl (Luxembourg), MTÜ Sotsiaalsete Ettevõtete Võrgustik (Estonia), Law and Internet Foundation (Bulgaria), Institute of Entrepreneurship Development (Greece), to achieve the results set out in the project, i.e. to create an inspiration paper to explore the meaning of social entrepreneurship, as well as an online simple virtual working space and to realize a compared analysis of the different working models.
The project is
implemented under the framework of the European Commissions’ Programme
Erasmus+, within Key Action 2: Cooperation for innovation and the exchange of
good practices, Action: Strategic partnership for youth.
