comeet-01COMEET+ is based on the idea that community actors such as parents, youth educators, community workers and teachers can play an essential role in the encouragement of entrepreneurial behaviour or young people. We believe that the educational community, especially families and community actors, have an essential role to foster entrepreneurship skills in young people. These skills will be decisive to increase new chances for developing future scenarios and employment in young people. In addition, these skills will help them to imagine and create a better environment and new opportunities.

The COMEET+ programme consist of a blended methodology that tackles essential parts of the process of entrepreneurial learning. Is is aimed for adults with little or basic previous experience but a will to contribute to develop develop the entrepreneurial mindset in young people.

We have designed a 30 hours group course for members of the educational community supported by an on-line course. This model has been tested by an european group of family members, teachers, youth workers and community actors that have actively review the on-line learning platform and attended the European Training held in Matera, Italy during 5 days in May.  We are currently implementing their feedback to come up with a useful and efficient solution that can satisfy our different target groups.

The COMEET+ on-line course ‘Entrepreneurial Skills for educators and families’, is already available although we are implementing the last improvements and on September 2017 we will launch an updated version. By joining the course, parents, community actors and teachers are given the knowledge and tools to inspire youngsters to become more entrepreneurial.
