YouthStart inspires underprivileged youth to find their path to success through a hands-on, interactive and creative training in entrepreneurship.

YouthStart inspires young people first and foremost towards entrepreneurial attitudes, to discover their “own” talents and develop their “hidden” skills. Acquiring business insight can lead to starting your own business. YouthStart offers young people essential coaching along the way. YouthStart works to familiarize young people with practical computer skills, necessary for their later professional life.

YouthStart Unique Concept

 

To succeed in our mission, YouthStart developed a five point concept:

  • an interactive, creative and hands-on course

  • experienced entrepreneurs and business people leading the trainings as certified trainers

  • a unique collaboration with the business world

  • assistance in finding start-up capital

  • a mentorship for young starters for two years

​​

When I followed the YouthStart course, I thought, like so many others, that I was a bit stupid and that I would never achieve anything more than being a simple sales assistant. I also thought that a YouthStart training wouldn’t make any difference to that,  but I was wrong. I prejudged everything, as so many other people had done to me. Thanks to the YouthStart course, I gave myself a purpose in life: within a few years, I want to open my own shop. But I am now so motivated that I have resumed my studies so that I will have something in my hands on which I can build my life.
