Young Migrant Entrepreneurs

Project Outline

“Entrepreneurship among migrants must be seen as a new arena for social, economic and political action.”

What Is the Young Migrant Entrepreneurs (YME) Project Focus?
  • Delivering entrepreneurial skills-building support through Youth Workers and Immigration Case Workers
  • Reinforcing links between youth work policy and migrant policy, research, and practice
  • Promoting better knowledge about the situation of young migrants and youth work and migrant policies
  • Recognition and validation of youth work and informal non-formal entrepreneurial learning at European, national, regional, and local levels
  • Mentoring/Youth Worker schemes for young migrants and young migrant would-be entrepreneurs.
  • Approaches to the assessment of entrepreneurial competences
  • Developing the competences of youth workers and youth trainers within the EU

Young migrants represent an important pool of potential entrepreneurs, but can face, as other more vulnerable groups, specific legal, cultural and linguistic obstacles. These issues need to be addressed in a complete way to give the right youth work entrepreneurial support equitable to that received by all other entrepreneurial groups. This is the main goal of the Young Migrant Entrepreneurs (YME) project.

“It’s clear there has never been a more important time for youth work to identify, encourage & support young migrants in entrepreneurship capacity building.”
