The Programa Jovens Empreendedores Sociais (JES, Young Entrepreneurs Social Programme) wishes to recognize and reward social initiatives and shine a spotlight on young entrepreneurs able of inspiring society.
JES wishes to encourage young social entrepreneurs to develop skills and growth as professionals by providing resources and tools to boost their projects and initiatives.
This initiative wants to be a benchmark in the young social entrepreneurship scene, acting as one of the pillars of Universidade Europeia’s university social responsibility policy, whose pillars are transparency, cooperation towards development and environmental action, in addition to the contributions inherent to a Higher Education Institution: education and training.
O JES is a Universidade Europeia initiative, part of the YouthActionNet programme promoted by the International Youth Foundation with the support of Laureate International Universities..
As an Institution with a B-Corp certification, this Programme is proof that Universidade Europeia seeks to recognise and reward initiatives and projects which can, in any way, change our society, generate a positive impact and contribute to the sustainability of future generations.
We want to recognize young social entrepreneur leaders working on social transformation based on equity, justice and protection of the environment. Young people between the ages of 18 and 29 who are founders or co-founders of a social or environmental project in Portugal (underway for at least 3 months) and who aim at social transformation based on equity, justice and environmental protection environment.
It recognises and rewards social initiatives and shines a spotlight on projects capable of inspiring Portuguese civil society.
This programme aims to be a benchmark in the young social entrepreneurship scene, acting as one of the pillars of Universidade Europeia’s university social responsibility policy.
To encourage young social entrepreneurs to develop skills and growth as professionals by providing resources and tools to boost their projects and initiatives.
A specialized jury will select, among all applications received, five young leading or co-leading young social entrepreneurship projects. They are offered one week of training in Madrid, networking them with winners from previous JES editions, in Spain.
They also have the mentorship of ASHOKA fellows and their network, with a privileged access to a worldwide network of global social entrepreneurs. In addition to all this, they will also receive a € 2 000.00 donation so they can invest in their own projects.
The projects of the 5 young winners will be announced by the international Laureate network, granting them as much visibility as possible. At the same time, they will also join the YouthActionNet young entrepreneurs network worldwide, with close to 1 500 members in more than 90 countries. This will allow them to share good practices, experiences and promote social progress in a collaborative way.
