The initiative will be a guide that will help youth of Ivano-Frankivsk OTG to gain relevant knowledge to open their own business and to be involved in solving social problems of their own community. It also aims to overcome the problem of low involvement in the decision-making process of young people with disabilities and young people from socially vulnerable groups and national minorities.
One of key stages of the initiative will be analysis of approaches in entrepreneurial skills formation among the youth of Ivano-Frankivsk OTH and creation of an opportunities map for the development of youth/school entrepreneurship in the community, which will be conducted by the expert team of RG4 UNP.
