This is where Pintolino comes into play

As a partner of Young Enterprise Switzerland (YES), we offer you and your class everything you need for a Pintolino project week, far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life!

Your students become small entrepreneurs and gain practical experience, based on the Lehrplan 21 curriculum, as a supplement to school lessons. We look forward to seeing you and your class!

  • Taken care of all around

    Whether you book a youth hostel exclusively or take rooms in a larger hostel: The high-quality rooms and the varied menus are the perfect basis for a successful project week.
  • Good infrastructure

    Many of our 50 or so youth hostels have extra seminar rooms and common areas, flipchart stands, presentation cases and projectors. In other words, everything that successful young entrepreneurs need.
  • Time for the projects

    Thanks to the many amenities that you and your class enjoy with us, you and your class will save more time for the Pintolino programme and all your accompanying activities.

Pintolino: Transforming your students into small entrepreneurs

Guided by the story of Dodo and Nino, the children develop their own idea for a product or service. In a team, they design, produce and tend to its marketing, deepening everything they have learned in class so far and moreover fostering their social skills. The programme is free, but really fun!

The best way to succeed in such an undertaking is to take a week to work on it away from everyday life. That’s why we partner with Young Enterprise Switzerland (YES), the non-profit organisation behind the Pintolino programme.
