The youth (un) employment is one of this generation’s most critical issues. The majority of European countries face high unemployment rates and significant differences between countries exist. The unfavorable employment situation (long job search periods, poor job quality and searching instead creating job opportunities) and the destructive influence from the societies contribute to an increasing number of demotivated and invisible youngsters in the SEE region. In this context, we recognized the justification of Dive in SE project and based on this we developed concept that will contribute towards fighting high rates of unemployment by capacity building of youth organizations in the field of social business through transnational cooperation and developing competencies of young unemployed people to create new social businesses. Moreover, what this project intends to do is to provide a way for active development of human capital, practical encouragement of social entrepreneurial activities and establishment of effective pathways to youth employment in strategic cooperation with different stakeholders.
