It is estimated that there are more than 100 million carers in Europe today. This accounts for about one fifth of the entire European population. Part of them are young people, principally girls. According to the Erasmus KA2 (Youth) funded Care to Work project and EUROCARERS' statistics, young carers are faced with additional barriers to education, training and employment. At a critical point for Europe when youth unemployment continues to rise, IARS has put together a strategic partnership of Erasmus organisations to run Care to Entrepreneurship, a youth-led, transnational project that will develop, test and implement innovative practices in a much neglected area in the field of youth support. Social entrepreneurial competences, such as business and strategic planning will be the main pillar of the capacity building course curriculum which has been developed for the young potential entrepreneurs of C2E.
