PROMYSE stands for PROMoting Youth Social Entrepreneurship.
The project website can be found at www.promyse.eu
At a critical point for Europe when youth unemployment continues to rise, IARS has put together a strategic partnership organisation to run PROMYSE as a youth-led, transnational project that will enhance the quality and relevance of the learning offer in education, training and youth work by:
developing a new, innovate and youth-led course for young prospective social entrepreneurs (with an emphasis on NEETS), and
supporting the adoption of best practices in promoting social entrepreneurship in the health and social care fields.
The objective of PromYse is to promote social entrepreneurship in the health & social care sectors as an alternative pathway to youth self-sustainability, by developing the social entrepreneurship and business skills of unemployed youth, with relevant educational or professional backgrounds, and raising awareness of the benefits and added value of social enterprises to the community as a whole.
Our project is based around a theory of change model that we have created to ensure that the project has a positive impact on young entrepreneurs.
The theory of change model has been constructed using key building blocks to bring about our long-term goal. It is reviewed on a monthly basis throughout the project and is a context for considering the connections between the project mission, strategies and actual outcomes, while creating links between who is being served, the strategies or activities that are being implemented and the desired outcomes. This theory of change is depicted as a "pathway of change framework", a graphical representation of our progress:
Promyse was launched in October 2017, and having conducted the first stage of our research, the partners have put together the project website and are beginning to build a curriculum for the project.

User and Civic participation is one of IARS’ founding values. The project will develop user-led training with the beneficiaries. What is unique about our evidence-based programme is that young people, especially NEETs are directly involved in design and delivery of the training. Due to their own lived experience, the young people are experts on the issues that affect them, and the project gives them an opportunity to have their voices heard.
