Abstract

Young people of Albania suffer from severe unemployment, causing many technically trained students to emigrate to other countries for better opportunities. This project, sponsored by Partners Albania for Change and Development, focused on the creation of business camps to promote entrepreneurship among vocational students. The creation of innovative businesses by these students will help to spur local economic growth and reduce the unemployment rate. Through multiple interviews, the camp curriculum was tailored to match the economic climate of Albania. These camps were extremely effective at teaching entrepreneurial ideas, with the students showing notable improvements in their understanding of business fundamentals.
