The project “Start-up Explorers” is a project initiated by 6 non-profit organisations (3 European and 3 Latin American) to encourage the cooperation between European & Latin American NGOs and skill up human capital from NGOs (youth workers) by providing quality entrepreneurial education instruments, supports the employability of NEETs and enhance the international dimension of youth activities.During the project we will facilitate the exchange of knowledge and best practices between youth workers who works in different entrepreneurial ecosystems, create training curricula in entrepreneurship education for young people, discover how to facilitate the youth transition from school to work and adult life.

The NGOs involved in the project will develop a new tool for experiential education in the field of entrepreneurship with a 4 steps cycle project:

Every Ending is Always a New Beginning - EVS

by Silvia Trapiella Lopez

And the day came to put an end to this wonderful year. If I have to be honest I had started writing this article a month ago ... but it was supposed to be another step towards the end ... so as always at the last minute I do it.  It is very difficult to summarize in a few words all the experiences, emotions and feelings experienced in a normal year, so a year of Evs will not be easy, but neither will it be impossible, so let's go there!I do not know where to start, but I remember the first day as if it were yesterday, those nerves of how everything would be, the apartment, the city, the flatmates, the project ... etc.
