Join us at the #EU Week of Regions and Cities! “Trust-based partnership models to empower Youth“

The YES! Project Partners have the great pleasure to invite all interested organisations in the families of the Fund for Youth Employment to participate to the online event we are organizing on 11 October 2022, from 15.00 – 16.30 CET.

In this event, during the European Week of Regions & Cities, we will share our experience establishing trust-based partnership models to scale impactful programs to empower youth. More specifically, we will focus on how the YES! research, expertise & implementation partners have developed, implemented, scaled & evaluated a promising volunteer mentoring methodology to support young entrepreneurs to set up and grow new businesses and to create and sustain jobs in Spain, Italy, Greece and Poland.

Along with our sincere appreciation to the Director of the Fund, the FO team and the FMO who backed us up on every step of the process,

We look forward to welcoming you all and to benefitting from your feedback and ideas on our approach and interventions!
