Social enterprise is an important development in the face of today’s huge socio-economic challenges. It’s a leap beyond responsible business to new, innovative social solutions. Moreover, young people like the idea of applying business skills and ingenuity to solve social problems in sustainable ways. The partnership that we are proposing here brings the worlds of education, training, skills, work and community closer together to inspire and recognize young social entrepreneurs. It's aim is toincrease the pool of potential social entrepreneurs by providing access to education in social enterprise to young people age 15-18 across Europe – we call it the “JA-YE Social Enterprise Programme”.
