The CYCLES project is set to improve entrepreneurship skills and financial literacy of child and youth care practitioners (CYCP) in order to upgrade their skills in the first place and second to be able to transfer the knowledge to young care leavers to prepare them for their future individual daily life.

Additional benefits of the CYCLES project are:

  • – First, the job profile of CYCP may involve a number of administrative and financial duties. Financial and entrepreneurial training can facilitate everyday work for CYCP as well as for their employers.
  • – Second, moving up the career ladder, CYCP will eventually be charged with the management of divisions or institutions. Being familiar with the basics of entrepreneurship and financial literacy, they will be better prepared to take the next career step.
