The YEPA aims to improve youth labour market outcomes by supporting governments and their partners in designing and implementing appropriate youth entrepreneurship policies. It will boost awareness of the need for policy support for youth entrepreneurship and conditions for policy success by:
- Raising awareness among policy makers about obstacles faced by young people with potential in entrepreneurship;
- Raising awareness among policy makers about successful policy approaches and how to design and implement them, as well as how to avoid policy failures;
- Raising awareness among policy makers and youth entrepreneurship networks on the attractiveness, specificities and added value of social entrepreneurship for youth; and
- Creating a regular mechanism for policy makers to consult with youth entrepreneurship networks and to stimulate youth entrepreneurship network creation.
