SOCIAL ENTREPRENEURSHIP AS A TOOL IN YOUTH WORK

PROJECT SUMMARY: This training course is aimed for youth workers, who are working with young people. The main aim of this project is to educate youth workers in the field of entrepreneurship with a focus on SE. We aim to equip the participants with knowledge of entrepreneurship that they would then pass on to youth.
