This toolkit was developed by the European Youth Forum.
HERE’S HOW THE CREATORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:
This toolkit is part of the overall strategy of the European Youth Forum to build the capacity of youth organizations in Europe. The first section of this toolkit presents the main features of the cooperative model and aims to raise awareness about the sector. This section is indeed pedagogical and presents the added value of the cooperative model and its synergies with the youth sector. The second section of the toolkit provides practical information and aims to guide youth organizations through the various steps of planning and setting up a cooperative. In addition, several case studies are presented throughout the toolkit, which provide concrete examples of youth organizations that have found a balance between their mission and objectives and an income generating activity. To conclude, the toolkit includes a list of unions and federations in Europe, which offer support and can provide answers to any questions youth organizations may have during the process of setting up a cooperative.
