YEA Malta National Alliance

The YEA Malta National Alliance
is for organisations that have as their social mission
youth and employment,
entrepreneurship and career development,
education and training,
culture and the arts.


The YEA project is built on the premise that entrepreneurship is a transversal skill of relevance to all young people because of the numerous ways it can be employed to further their goals whether in one works for an organisation or in self-employment.

The idea behind the setting up of national or regional alliances in the terrritories represented by the partnership in the YEA project is to bring together stakeholders in entrepreneurship training, youth work (especially non-profit organisations), local authorities and regional and national organisations promoting social development.

Within the National Alliance the players
- identify local practices in entrepreneurship training in the arts be it in formal or in non-formal education environments and share experience in the field within the Alliance,
- explore possibilities for exploitation of the products of the YEA project including training content on entrepreneurship in the arts,
- explore opportunities and best practices in integrating entrepreneurship education into the informal structures of youth work making it more relevant in the lives of young people in so far as employability and entrepreneurship spirit are concerned and
- draw up Regional Action Plans to work together to create avenues for cooperation and new opportunities for young people seeking a career in the arts and in the creative industries.

Like other Regional Alliances the YEA National Alliance for Malta and Gozo will be structured in such a way that it can become a permanent forum for stakeholder collaboration for entrepreneurship education in youth services.

Unlike other Regional Alliances the YEA National Alliance for Malta and Gozo it has organisations that are not from Malta but that are keen on engaging in the exchange and exploration activities of our National Alliance.
