interships

YouthProAktiv is an organization that aims to create a generation of proactive individuals ready to invest their talents for the betterment of society by starting their own business and creating jobs for themselves and for others.

We train young people to become leaders of tomorrow capable of creating jobs for themselves and others.

We advocate for entrepreneurship-friendly policies at national and international level to achieve a decent employment for all and a resource-free sustainable development.

Our work is structured across two basic pillars:

At educational level, we work to promote a reform that will individualize and personalize the system, and will create actual room for young people to discover and appreciate their own talents, boost their potential, and develop the abilities that will allow an efficient and sustainable transition from the academic to the professional life. We believe this reform will contribute to altering the existing reactive mindset and establish a proactive one, favorable to the creation of an enabling environment, which will help develop new generations of socially responsible leaders and entrepreneurs.

We also advocate for entrepreneur-friendly policies at both national and international level. We work with political leaders to create legislation that will allow young people to start their own business and a reform of the educational system, as both are essential for ensuring a socially responsible development and a decent employment for all.

YouthProAktiv is a non-governmental and non-profit international organization. Our headquarters are based in Brussels. YouthProAktiv is spread around Europe through a network of national organizations working on the ground with and for young people.
