Background

There is an urging need to develop entrepreneurship for young people all around the world and one of the most innovative means, for which there is not much European literature, is the model of the youth initiative cooperative. The Canadian model will serve as a point of reference, with the objective of transposing and adapting the methodology and creating a European cooperative model of youth initiatives. The main result is to offer young people an opportunity to take back control, find or regain a place in society, and fully benefit from social inclusion.
