EDEEY offers an innovative, accredited training course to prepare those without access to infinite capital on how to utilise digital entrepreneurship as a way of poverty alleviation, whilst also increasing the creation of jobs for their peers. Non-formal education is just as crucial as formal education for the development of young people to suit the new future of work, therefore EDEEY is a vital initiative to adequately prepare young people for the labour market. In addition to the youth-led, innovative training programme that the project will create and pilot, it will generate numerous entrepreneurial social action activities through youth volunteering and internships.
Adopting a youth-led methodology, the project will construct and implement evidence-based, well-tested and replicable educational and training curricula to develop young peoples' practice, creative and entrepreneurial skills to enable them to harness the power of digital entrepreneurship and offer economic empowerment.
Many studies have recognised the role in which entrepreneurship aids poverty alleviation, enabling those from disadvantaged backgrounds to break away from their underprivileged positions and seek their own solution to unemployment or discrimination in the labour market. While acquiring these new skills and competencies, our target groups will also receive accreditation as the courses will receive a CPD status. Where applicable we will also offer an ESC Certificate and YouthPass.
