 Recognizing Young Entrepreneurs and teaching Entrepreneurship 

It will be entrepreneurs with entrepreneurial skills that will create the jobs of the future and help reduce unemployment. It is for this reason that the second part of the YERRF project is to widen the awareness of Entrepreneurship, commercially and socially, as both a career option and also as a subject which should be taught in education.
Following part 1 of the project which finished in November 2017 we saw in place the website for the YERRF project, and now we are looking to advance to the next step of constructing workshops on the subject of entrepreneurship learning and teaching. So we need volunteers to help us in the production of educational materials, videos, games and guides on the subject of entrepreneurship which will aim to encourage entrepreneurial education.
