Youth Entrepreneurship Support Network (YES Network) is a European network of youth related civil society organisations (CSOs) working in the field of youth entrepreneurship. 
We offer capacity building, networking and promotion of activities and initiatives for youth empowerment in order to increase the effectiveness of our members. Our members enhance their capacities and offer endless possibilities for young people in their cities and regions that contribute towards fostering national economic development through innovation, entrepreneurship and transfer of knowledge.

Our Services

Project Setup Service

We offer high-quality, customized project application and implementation services to help clients seize new EU funding opportunities and turn innovative ideas into project proposals. This ranges from EU public grants and private loans identification, consortium recruitment, bid writing, selection of experts, negotiation with the granting authorities, budgeting, quality control and implementation of projects.


We provide a range of research programmes and services that aim to support civil society organisations to conduct, share and publish research. We take an innovative and cross-disciplinary approach, spanning theoretical and applied research. We identify emerging issues and translate them into research that bridges the gap between theory and practice. We provide accessible and grounded insights useful to academics, policy-makers and practitioners.

Capacity Building

We help our members fulfill their mission by increasing their capacities for effectively running their organisations. All courses delivered by the network are tailored according to the members’ needs and are designed and delivered by highly experienced development trainers that have on average 15 years of hands-on experience in the sector.

We offer specialist consultancy services for our members involved in youth entrepreneurship. We help organisations through development and change processes, which can involve strategy development and programme design. We assist CSOs and donors in the evaluation of programmes and offer support in monitoring and evaluation. We also offer short-term consultancies including desk studies, mentoring, peer reviews and workshop facilitation.

Event Management

We can conceptualize and implement various types of events for our members. We maintain national strategic relationships and an extensive knowledge base that allow us the resources to execute events at any level.
