Youth unemployment remains on an upwards trajectory across Europe. At the same time, young people are innovating and have strong motivation to create new markets and jobs. CASYE responds to this current reality and youth needs by supporting youth entrepreneurship in the creative sector through the development and piloting a social economy model, with an emphasis on empowering young people with fewer opportunities (social obstacles, geographical obstacles and/or economic obstacles).
CASYE (Cultural and Social Youth Entrepreneurship) project aims to develop innovative CPD accredited tools to support marginalised young people in becoming entrepreneurs in the social and cultural sectors through the capacity building and certification of youth workers and other professionals by giving them new approaches to support and strengthen their work, improve their skills, and increase the quality of their interventions.
The CASYE programme guarantees the development of a sustainable ecosystem in supporting youth entrepreneurs in the creative European cultural and social sectors.
