The project “Inspire the Future” comprises 3 training courses aiming to enhance social inclusion of young people, tackling unemployment through social entrepreneurship.

The partners of this project argued that specific capacity is needed in order to build leadership in young people and enable them to lead social businesses in the local community, enhancing their active citizenship and social inclusion. In order to address this need, the partners found necessary to organize a training giving youth leaders necessary methods and insights in this regard.

The project has a holistic approach and strengthens the partners’ capacity to enhance social cohesion in Europe and contribute to the well being of young people and strengthens the cooperation between youth organizations and social enterprises in order to commonly address challenges of young people. Furthermore, throughout the project the partners will have the opportunity to work on concrete follow up projects through Erasmus+ programme ensuring the sustainability of the youth work and enhancing their European dimension.
