“ICE-CREAM for social entrepreneurship” is a uniquely designed training for trainers and youth workers, aimed at development of entrepreneurship skills and competences, increasing the capacity of organizations and youth workers in social projects creation and implementation, raising quality and innovation in youth work and, therefore, bringing significant changes in the societies on the local, national and, where applicable, international levels.


ICE-CREAM is the innovative approach, model and algorithm of the efficient and logical step by step creation and implementation of a social project or entrepreneurial/business idea:


I – nvestigate: the need/problem;
C – ollaborate: with a team and stakeholders;
E – laborate: the concept and idea of the project (identify and specify the needs, service or product, target groups, impact and outcomes);
CREA – te: the details (the name of your project, program, activities, methods and tools, time frames, venue, other logistics);
M – anage: your project (plan, apply for a grant/fundraise, prepare, launch, implement, disseminate, follow-up and report);

(M – arket: your project (present, promote, develop PR and communication)).


The program of the training course is structured according to the ICE-CREAM model: we have separate days, each of them fully devoted respectively to Investigation, Collaboration, Elaboration, CREAtion, and Management/Marketing of the project (were we will also explore the dimension and tools of digital entrepreneurship). During another full day (24 hours), the youth workers in small teams or individually, using the ICE-CREAM algorithm, will be creating and preparing their projects (entrepreneurial ideas). And on the next day, in the format of Hackathon, they will present their projects (entrepreneurial ideas), making digital presentations and promotion pitches, will receive feedback from the experts, will analyze and improve their ideas to be able to bring them to life.


The learning by doing and participatory approaches ensures many interactive activities, a lot of experience exchange and inputs from the participants. We will have both practical and debrief sessions on all the elements of the ICE-CREAM model, ensuring a detailed understanding for all participants.
