An Innovative Approach to Engage European Youth in Positive entrepreneurial initiatives

Project Description

The GROWTH project aims to investigate self-concepts, positive emotions, thriving, and resilience of youth, by shedding
light to a new direction of positive entrepreneurship, developing an innovative method of training course and game-based
tool that will empower young individuals with fewer opportunities to start their own business, assisted by mentorship,
promoting a strong combination of business value and self-worth.
The concrete results are to set the basis for the generation, implementation, and promotion of sustainable innovative ideas
and business plans, designed and derived from young individuals, guided by Youth Workers, that will allow them grow as
young entrepreneurs, develop and exploit their skills, boosting their self-concepts, highlighting the importance of positive
psychology, and bring them closer to entrepreneurship.

The main expected outcome of GROWTH project is to generate, implement and promote sustainable ideas and business plans deriving from youth that will allow them to grow as young entrepreneurs, boost their self-concepts and get them closer to entrepreneurship, as well as the intention to support youth workers and organizations by developing further their professional knowledge, skills, and competences. The achievement of project objectives and the insurance of sustainable results need cooperation and interaction. Wanting to avoid the realization of activities in a single country ,the selection of
