GAME works with entrepreneurship for youth. They have huge development potential and are courageous, innovative and restless. And then they have an urge to be creative and have high expectations for themselves and their communities.
To unleash this power, GAME is not only providing training and meaningful roles in community programs but also directing economic resources to create new opportunities for young people to grab.
STREET SPORTS INCUBATOR
The Street Sports Incubator will strengthen entrepreneurship and youth employment in a region where youth unemployment has reached 40%.
The project is addressing the immense youth unemployment problem by fostering entrepreneurship and allowing youth to use street sports, leadership and entrepreneurship to make positive changes for themselves and the children and peers in their local area.
It also supports young people’s ideas with seed funding, counseling and mentoring, to transform their ideas into viable business start-ups or non-profit initiatives.
Since then, Street Sports Incubator has also started in Lebanon in 2021 as part of the Youth Resolve II program supported by the EU.
PLATFORM FOR STREET SPORTS
In Denmark, a lot of children and youth do not participate in traditional sports associations. For some, the barriers are social, cultural or economic. For others, organized, adult-led sports every Tuesday and Thursday are not attractive.
GAME‘s Danish Platform for Street Sports’ goal is to unleash and support entrepreneurial skills among youth on street sports initiatives. The program supports youth on a journey from idea-generating, through applying for microgrants, to implementing the idea, making partnerships and reporting on impact and finance.
