Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs

How to be an Erasmus Young Entrepreneur at Canary Green with John Dale Beckley

Canary Green Founder, John Dale Beckley, is looking for ambitious members who are ready to join us in order to make this world more sustainable. If you are good at social media (Video and photography) and sustainability is important to you, then we are inviting you to use Erasmus+ international exchange opportunities in Tenerife!

Erasmus is the most successful programme created by the EU for young people. It was established in 1987 and has become more and more popular over the years. There are all sorts of opportunities for youngsters so everyone has a place. Today we’re going to discuss one branch of Erasmus+, called Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs (or simply put, EYE).
Also, you will find out what you need to do in order to apply and why John Dale Beckley and Canary Green are a good option for this exchange.

EYE is a business exchange that offers young people, passionate about entrepreneurship, the chance to go to a small business and be mentored by its manager, called a host entrepreneur. You will get the chance to work together for a period of minimum one month up to six months (although we require you stay 4-6months). The objective of this exchange is for young entrepreneurs to learn new skills and to improve their business plan while also helping the host entrepreneur refine his business. It’s a win-win situation.

In order to be eligible to work with us, you need:

  • to have an interest in Sustainability

  • preferably have a skill set with Digital Media creation and Social Media (photography, video and copywriters)

  • motivation to become an entrepreneur with a solid business idea

  • be able to come for at least 3 (ideally 6 months)

  • to be resident of one of the 27 E.U. member states.

If you are a young business owner (maximum 3 years since you started the business), then you can also take part in the exchange. If you have not signed up for Erasmus for Young Entrepreneurs yet, visit:

The next step is to search on the site for an intermediary organisation (IO) for EYE in your country. You should contact them and they will guide you regarding the next steps.

EYE Program´s benefits:

  1. You get paid with a specified amount of money each month (the sum depends on the country you choose to go to, here it’s €1,100)
  2. You get to choose your favourite mentor (John Dale Beckley) from a platform that has thousands of host entrepreneurs, arranged according to their field and country
  3. You will spend the entire period of the exchange on developing your business while also helping another business grow
  4. You have one of the best opportunities for international networking
  5. You get to taste a new culture
  6. The programme is well structured, you always have the support of the intermediary organisation and everything is safe and supervised

So, now that you got the main idea, let’s find out why Canary Green is a great choice for this exchange:

  • We have a young, intercultural team with one goal – to make the Canary Islands and the world – more sustainable.

  • We have other young entrepreneurs working here as volunteers and they are all ready to give you a helping hand.

  • We are super flexible with the way we work and we have an open-minded entrepreneurial attitude towards our project.

  • We believe your personal brand/reputation is for your whole career, we are here to give it a booster shot.

  • Canary Green is the best place for you if you are into sustainability or if you have a touch for social media, digital marketing, photography or videography. You will have an opportunity to contribute to social media activities such as creating and publishing content, making photos, videos, managing social media accounts.
