Summary :

COOPSTARTER 2.0 – A VOCATIONAL AND EDUCATIONAL TRAINING STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN COOPERATIVES AND YOUTH ORGANIZATION

This second CoopStarter project aims to foster the development of a cooperative entrepreneurial culture amongst young generations, by creating synergies and capitalizing on experience and resources of both cooperative associations and youth organisations.

Throughout the project, 12 mentors from 6 countries will create together innovative mentoring tools, aimed at enabling cooperative associations and youth organisations to encourage and support young leaders to develop cooperative-related projects in a consistent and complementary way. This material will be tested on a pool of 10 young volunteers, called “ambassadors”, through a series of 3 activities organised in 5 pilot countries.
