YSE – SOCIAL ENTRPRENEURSHIP FOR YOUTH IN EUROPE

Precarious employment in Europe affects in an intense way to young people, determining their increased vulnerability, as the most affected age group.

The project targets young people unemployed from ethnic minorities groups and disadvantaged backgrounds, 18 to 30 years, with low levels of education, who do not find their first job, and seek to insert themselves in the labour market in the best conditions. This is the group that has experienced a more rapid and intense loss of employment and also has a lower level of social protection coverage, associated with its higher degree of job insecurity. They will learn skills on social entrepreneurship, as a solution to unemployment in regions involved.

YSE deals with new business models, working to improve methodologies from organizations involved, to favour labour insertion of young people focusing exclusively on social entrepreneurship and social enterprises. This will be done through exchanges of good practices, the spread of innovative solutions and work at local and European level.

The main expected results are related to the improvement of labour insertion of youth, that will receive information and learning on social entrepreneurship, through innovative practices and new methodologies that will born from the exchanges.
