The YEA project has been carefully structured to find new ways to integrating entrepreneurship training into youth services in the field of creative, performing and digital arts. Rather than viewing entrepreneurship just as a means to self-employment, YEA is built on the premise that entrepreneurship is a transversal skill of relevance to all young people because of the numerous ways it can be employed to further their goals.
As a Creative, Performing or Digital Arts Centre the YEA project can provide you with:
- A range of practical professional training accessible in classrooms sessions and open access resources (online, mobile, tablet) for your staff; this is particularly significant given the relative lack of tailor made training for youth workers;
- Improved organizational capacity to create real social and economic impact as you pioneer innovative new services.
- The potential for improved sustainability of your work in the creative sector based on the contribution and leadership of young people and staff in designing innovative and sustainable creative arts initiatives.
- Access to a dynamic yet sustainable network of like-minded organizations with whom you can continue to share ideas and knowledge.
