Training of youth worker for Social Entrepreneurship Against Discrimination

SENAD - 13 to 20 of June 2021

In the training different activities will be done that will ensure the effective execution of the project as well as the achievement of its objectives. Specifically, below every issue or need that we want to provide this activity and we are trying to give a simple explanation about these issues that we want to have through our activity.

1. We want at first, to create cultural awareness among participants (we are explaining how this is going to be achieved in next session). All youth workers from participating organisation wants to have this intercultural interaction and through this to examine new ways of learning through Non-Formal education.

2. Also, to raise awareness about the existence of discrimination and the possible personal and professional implications that may affect an individual and,

3. To provide the relevant knowledge and involve participants in activities that will enable them to criticize and attempt to eliminate any form of discrimination.

By these sessions we want them to be active in Human Rights to know that are rights inherent to all human beings, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status. Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more. Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination.


4. Among them, we want to introduce and promote the concept of Social Entrepreneurship (SE).

Participants and generally youth workers must have good knowledge about SE, as we know SE is an approach by individuals, groups, start-up companies or entrepreneurs, in which they develop, fund and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues. This concept may be applied to a wide range of organizations, which vary in size, aims, and beliefs. For-profit entrepreneurs typically measure performance using business metrics like profit, revenues and increases in stock prices. Social entrepreneurs, however, are either non-profits, or they blend for-profit goals with generating a positive "return to society". Therefore, they use different metrics. Social entrepreneurship typically attempts to further broad social, cultural, and environmental goals often associated with the voluntary sector in areas such as poverty alleviation, health care and community development.

5. One of our issues is to examine ways of how Social Entrepreneurship can contribute into dealing with discrimination in either personal or professional level.

We want from our participants to examine ways of how they are able to use SE and also to be the one that make the change. At times, profit-making social enterprises may be established to support the social or cultural goals of the organization but not as an end in themselves. For example, an organization that aims to provide housing and employment to the homeless may operate a restaurant, both to raise money and to provide employment for the homeless.In the 2010s social entrepreneurship was facilitated by the use of the Internet, particularly social networking and social media websites. These websites enable social entrepreneurs to reach numerous people who are not geographically close yet who share the same goals and encourage them to collaborate online, learn about the issues, disseminate information about the group's events and activities, and raise funds through crowdfunding. Social entrepreneurs can include a range of career types and professional backgrounds, ranging from social work and community development to entrepreneurship and environmental science. For this reason, it is difficult to determine who is a social entrepreneur. For a clearer definition of what social entrepreneurship entails, it is necessary to set the function of social entrepreneurship apart from other voluntary sector and charity-oriented activities and identify the boundaries within which social entrepreneurs operate. Some scholars have advocated restricting the term to founders of organizations that primarily rely on earned income (meaning income earned directly from paying consumers), rather than income from donations or grants. Others have extended this to include contracted work for public authorities, while still others include grants and donations.

We will try to give them all the definitions and the participants to have the chance to give their ideas about SE and to implement their ideas through the different elements of the activities.

All the above are issues and needs that are coming to an agreement with the needs of all organizations (applicant and partners) where all they work with participants with fewer opportunities and they are working in the area of discrimination and SE. We will try according to our project to provide all the above-mentioned issues and to make participants to get out of the Box
