The Macedonian society in transition is facing a high rate of youth unemployment and youth emigration as harmful phenomenon for the overall societal and economic development of the country. Youth Alliance came to the conclusion that youth unemployment is particularly present out of the capital city, which is really disappointing since young people should be the driving force of the society. The eight-month project "ENTER Social Entrepreneurship" implemented by YAK aimed to increase the youth employment through the concept of social entrepreneurship and simultaneously promoting economic and business development of Pelagonija Region, with the financial support of the Embassy of the United States of America in Skopje, Macedonia.
Major goal of the project
The aim of the project "ENTER Social Entrepreneurship" increased opportunities for youth employment through the innovative concept of social entrepreneurship thus promoting economic and business development of Pelagonija Region.
