Initiative for Teaching Entrepreneurship (IFTE) sets out to foster an entrepreneurial mindset among youth for their professional and entrepreneurial independence. The goal is to create a culture of entrepreneurship that is seen as tool for equal opportunities and to empower individual creativity that fuels economic growth.

YouthStart, formerly NFTE Belgium, was launched in 1998, inspired by the American model and the first European country to offer this unique program. We focus on youngsters and young adults who, due to circumstances, haven’t immediately been able to find their role in society. Young people who could use some extra motivation and encouragement. Young people with potential, but who didn’t have a chance to develop their talents.
The quality of YouthStart’s services is ensured by a dynamic partnership between the management, the employees, the Board, the freelance trainers and our volunteers. Most trainers combine YouthStart with other professional activities and some had a career in management, or are retired. There is one quality they have in common: sharing their knowledge and experience with young people.
We are proud of the support provided by Her Majesty Queen Mathilde granting her Patronage to YouthStart Belgium. This is a tremendous privilege for all the YouthStart Belgium employees and trainers.

ONE WORLDcitizens connects young people, aged 10 to 30 years from Europe, Africa and Asia to share ideas for social and ecological change, to be trained in social entrepreneurship and to create change together, based on the 17 Global Goals. For two important reasons: to enable youths to create a better life, society, future perspective and to create their own jobs/startups to increase youth employment.
Today social entrepreneurship is a ‘must-have’ for youth to become strong, entrepreneurial world citizens who are ready to face the challenges of their future and to be able to undertake sustainable solutions worldwide together. The fast way to create this ‘must-have’ for all youth is to enable entrepreneurial young people aged 18-30 years to train youth aged 10-18 years and to inspire them to undertake social projects/startups together, locally and globally. That’s why OWC implements YouthStart in the concept: social entrepreneurship by & for young people.
Network for Teaching Young Entrepreneurs (NTYE) is a registered Community Interest Company (July 2011) aiming to raise awareness of entrepreneurship as a viable career option for 13 to 18-year-olds. We provide opportunities for young people to develop their personal skills and knowledge and to give them the potential to become the young entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
NTYE‘s Programmes are exciting and provide a unique way of learning – from the “classroom to the boardroom”. The Programmes are high energy and allow students to learn through fun. Our programme provides a platform for young minds to develop and enhance their business knowledge, skills and entrepreneurial spirit in preparation for their working life.
On an NTYE Programme, Students are empowered to take on the mindset of young professional people in business and they are challenged each day by business demands, leadership issues and taking ownership and responsibility for their actions.
