Entrepreneurs in Action offer a range of programmes and activities which unlock the untapped talents of young people. EiA work in partnership with organisations to give students a real taste of enterprise through exciting, hands-on business challenges and learning programmes.
We want to inspire young people of all backgrounds and abilities to follow their passions. We want to open their minds to the possibilities and opportunities available to them in the business world.
We give young people a positive taste of a real-life working environment. Learning activities are structured to encourage young people to be innovative, to experiment and to develop their potential as future entrepreneurs, creators and leaders.
EiA programmes enable young people to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes they will need in the business and world of work. From effective communication and team-work, to marketing ideas, to sound business and financial planning, programmes equip young people for the future. But more importantly, EiA changes aspirations and mindsets.
Our facilitators use coaching techniques and group work to help young people develop and implement their own ideas, and to think about what they have learned from the experience. Young people are motivated to expand their ideas about the future direction of their lives.
EiA is committed to making enterprise a ‘real’ experience so that programmes change young people’s view of business and they see that it’s something they can really do. They experience the satisfaction of working hard as a team to successfully accomplish a challenging business project. EiA programmes raise young people’s confidence and self-esteem to bring out the best in them.
