Youth & Social Entrepreneurship: the role of PES

21.05.2014 to 22.05.2014
Post-event documentation: 

Youth unemployment and inactivity is a major problem in Europe. In most countries, young population is struggling to find a job and stay in the labour market. At the same time, other disadvantaged groups are in a similar position. Entrepreneurship is one possibility to fight both youth unemployment and for finding innovative solutions to social problems.

The Public Employment Services play a crucial role in supporting the entry on the labour market for young people as well as different disadvantaged groups.

Public Employment Services representatives will exchange good practices of youth entrepreneurship from three different views: training/preparations, access to financial resources and how to follow up the result.

Speakers will in addition share experiences on social entrepreneurship to promote opportunities for disadvantaged groups.
