The Cultural & Social Youth Entrepreneurship (CASYE) project brings together a strategic partnership of four organisations from the UK, Belgium, Italy and Spain to address a number of sectorial and horizontal priorities for Erasmus.


For the development of the model, the partnership has conducted research on the identification of existing models for social entrepreneurs and enterprises in Spain, Italy, Belgium and the UK, using also other relevant case studies from partnership countries. A total of 12 case studies at the transnational European level on best entrepreneurial development stories, including transfer of knowledge, are also selected and analyzed in the research.

The CASYE project designed a set of policy recommendations for policymakers and educators addressing the importance of promoting youth social entrepreneurship in the creative sector.

This document was developed after the implementation of a background research on the topic, of a collection of good practices, a mentoring programme framework for educators and a co-creation workshop with stakeholders of the field.

CASYE project will publish an e-Handbook, which acts as a single source of mentoring exercises that can be implemented during the CASYE mentoring programme.

The handbook will contain all of the relevant worksheets and materials needed during the mentoring sessions, as well as other useful information they can refer to throughout the mentoring relationship, such as program contact information, tips for relating with their mentors, and activity suggestions. 

The handbook exercises for mentees aims to collect around 20 activities online and/or offline.

The e-handbook is available for free and open to everyone.
