PRESS RELEASE - What is The project YERRF?

YERRF is the acronym for the project titled " Young Entrepreneurs Rejuvenate Rural France " which is an Erasmus+ project being jointly funded by the European Commision and the Association Les Amis De La Giraudière. The objective is to encourage young people to learn entrepreneurship and to see that entrepreneurship is a potential career option. The YERRF project is being created by a group of international volunteers and will aim to provide well informed, impartial advice together with a different outlook which will add some concrete foundations upon which our young entrepreneurs can build their individual projects.
The volunteers will put in place 4 principle workshops headed as follows, Entrepreneurial Workshop, Marketing Workshop, Financial Workshop and  a business language workshop each of which will provide comprehensive information on their relative subjects and some tangible resources for our young start-up's.
Five Erasmus partners, or sending organisations, were searched and over 150 applied to partner us from which the following organisations were selected to be the partners along this entrepreneurial route.

YASAR University - Izmir, Turkey
AYUNTAMIENTO DE MARACENA - Maracena, Spain
EURO SUD - Triggiano, Italy
AYUNTAMIENTO DE ALZIRA - Spain
CHECK-IN  - Lisbon, Portugal

Each of the partners were asked to send a volunteer to participate in the mobility 4 of which found and selected volunteers. Apart from the Erasmus volunteers, or EVS volunteers, we have also had over 300 candidates from around the globe apply to be a volunteer, (non Erasmus ie an LGV volunteer). From this 30 have been selected and by the end of the 1st cycle volunteers from 6 continents would have been represented.The first step is a call for partners worldwide who would like to contribute either help, discounts, resources, learning & other materials which would help our potential entrepreneurs. For this to happen the volunteers will pass their first month researching for and writing letters to possible global partners.
We will also be looking for either free or reduced fees of services and products from banks and financial organisations. Similar from Accountants, Marketing companies, Website creation & business software providers, Website hosting services and other organisations that may be able help. We will seek Grants & help from government organisations and bodies. The international, national and local press and media will be contacted in the hope that an articles is published to make people aware of this project. A fundamental part of our research we will be looking for Expos, fairs, local markets and open days so that YERRF can go mobile which brings us to the third step where YERRF will meet and speak with young people interested in the subject of Entrepreneurship so that we can find out their needs, fears and aspirations. Following the results of our questionnaires, surveys and face to face meetings we may have to go back over our first step and look for more to offer or improve what we have for our Young Entrepreneurs here.
What’s next will be open doors at La Giraudiere with invitations to all Young Entrepreneurs who need help to kick start their projects. Local schools, colleges, universities and government bodies such as pole emploi, mission locale etc will also be invited to come along to our workshops.
