Youth Empowerment by Entrepreneurial Skills
JO Consulting takes part to the YES project, co-funded by the European programme “Erasmus +”. YES helps youth workers to understand what entrepreneurship is and to put it into practice through a series of modern and digital tools within the Venture Programme Project (VPP), which is their business project plan/idea. This makes their professional profile much stronger and improves their survival rate as entrepreneurs. In addition, youth workers can transfer their new trained skills and use our methodology to contribute to fight youth unemployment through entrepreneurship.
Therefore, final aim of YES project is that youth workers develop the basic competencies and confidence to create their own business and know how to use the practical tools for that, contributing to the fight against youth unemployment.
The target groups of YES are young people aged between 18 and 25 years old who are facing learning difficulties, from lack of motivation to educational capabilities limitations. These individuals are at the end of their formal education courses and (almost) ready to work or to continue to the next level of education. In both cases, this programme can provide them with a solid base for starting their own company and they even have the possibility to continue their concepts developed during this programme, prepare a solid business plan and give life to their business.
JO Consulting, as technological partner, provides the e-learning software with the e-learning courses as real valuable learning resources for young learners and trainers. The idea is to create an interactive learning area containing a set of quizzes, exercises, videos and useful training material that encourage the involvement and the active participation of target users.
