The Young Entrepreneurs Program (YEP) aims to better prepare Kosovo youth for work in a growing market economy and for engaged citizenship in a developing democracy. To meet this goal, the YEP team will work together with selected market areas, engaging employers and other local, regional, and national leaders to blend together resources, skills, and policies for a sustainable system of opportunities and supports for out of school and out of work young people. The three objective components—youth employment and work readiness, entrepreneurship training and enterprise support, and youth civic engagement—for the YEP program will be carefully articulated with each other to constitute a single, integrated strategy for supporting the youth of Kosovo and for engaging Kosovo employers in the development of a trained and prepared workforce.
YEP is an associate award under the EQUIP3: Learning and Earning for Out-of-School Youth program.
