Building inclusive communities through community-based entrepreneurship
The Welcomeship is an exciting new model for entrepreneurship learning for young migrants together with local young people as a tool of inclusion. The project will be a collaboration between several expert organisations in the field of entrepreneurship learning, migration and advocacy/lobbying as well as several implementing organisations which will directly pilot and implement the project in their communities.
The Welcomeship consists of a model for entrepreneurial learning based on non-formal learning methods that are designed for young migrants and will be open to local youth from the communities in which the project is implemented. The overarching goal of the welcomeship is to bridge the gap between locals and new community members.
This project will address fears and prejudices in the community and foster a positive community spirit. The young people that are enrolled will develop entrepreneurial ideas which address community issues and build partnerships with stakeholders to bring about positive change to the local communities. This collaboration is intended to lead to openness, tolerance and an atmosphere of togetherness in the community towards building inclusive communities.
This project is co-funded by European Commission within Erasmus+ Programme.
