Young female NEETs aged 15-29, youth workers



  • Development of entrepreneurial skills of female NEETs
  • Decrease of the number of women belonging to the NEET group
  • Increase of the number of female entrepreneurs
  • Increase of the teaching capabilities of youth workers in the field of entrepreneurship



The main strategy that is going to be implemented to accomplish this goal is to provide youth workers with tools based on non-formal education (NFE). Thus, the project will be the exchange of good practices, aimed at producing a toolkit that can be used across the EU in fostering entrepreneurship. It will do so by employing the Entrepreneurship as a Competence framework (EntreComp), working on the 3 competences it defines: ‘ideas and opportunities’, ‘resources’ and ‘into action’. The following EntreComp goals are in the scope of the project: ‘I want to mobilise’ and ‘I want to create value’. They will be accomplished by inspiring young female NEETs to pursue the career in the entrepreneurial world and by adapting it to their specific local context
