“From Idea to Action 6” is a 5 days training course, which targets youth workers and youth leaders. The main aim of this ourse is to empower participants to develop their competences promoting and supporting Youth Entrepreneurship in the social field.

The main aim of this Training Course is to empower the youth workers and youth leaders participating in the course to develop their competences promoting and supporting Youth Entrepreneurship in the social field.

This will be done by experiencing themselves the process and the steps of putting ideas into concrete action plans during the Training Course so they can transfer their learnings from their own experience to supporting and accompanying social entrepreneurial projects from the youngsters they are working with in their communities.

The participants should come with an idea (real or example) to work on it in order to learn the process and steps of bringing it to life. We recommend this idea to be as close as possible to the reality of their community and youngsters.

In this TC, the participants will:

Learn how to implement an idea into practice (by using concepts and tools such as idea analysis, project planning, marketing and visibility, financing and funding).
Experience themselves this process working on one concrete idea (social entrepreneurial project, creation of organizations, Erasmus + projects….).
Get conclusions about difficulties and motivation factors to transfer them in the support of young people in their communities.
During this project we will work with a wide spectrum of projects, from social local entrepreneurial projects to international projects, especially in the field of the Erasmus + Programme and of the European Solidarity Corps.

Concrete objectives of the TC are:

To give the opportunity to participants to learn key elements and concepts of being entrepreneurial and how to support youth social entrepreneurship.
To get familiar with concepts and tools and practice how to apply them and transfer them to the youngsters they are working with.
To explore different options for finding the right match between existing frames and social entrepreneurial ideas.
To create a network that will allow support, networking, cooperation and sharing of experiences among the participants.


The pedagogical approach of the training will be based in three main points:

Mix of theoretical inputs combined with practical exercises to allow the comprehension of the concepts and tools.
Working with different learning methods based on non-formal education: self-directed learning methods, peer to peer learning, supporting groups… to allow the transfer of the learning into different situations and their reality.
Using the existing resources in the TC: participants, trainers and real entrepreneurial examples that we will get to know during the TC.
