This research is applied in terms of nature and falls under correlational-descriptive studies. The statistical population consists of all managers and staffs of the general bureau in the city of Sanandaj where as many as 150 people were placed under study through random classified sampling method. Research tools were comprised of two Empowerment and Social Entrepreneurship Questionnaires whose content validity was confirmed by experts and the reliability of general dimensions and tools was confirmed by the Alpha of 0.51 to 0.78. Data analysis was conducted through Spearman correlational Tests and Concurrent regression. Research findings revealed that there was a positive and significant relationship between all dimensions of empowerment (dimension of self-efficacy feeling; sense of being meaningful; sense of being effective; feeling of merit; freedom of action and social trust) with social entrepreneurship in the General bureau of Cooperation, Labor, and Social Welfare, Province of Kurdistan. Regression results also suggested that overall empowerment and its dimensions were appropriate predictors for the variable of social entrepreneurship. Consequently, dimensions of self-efficacy feeling, feeling of being effective, feeling of meaningfulness and social trust in the variable of empowerment hold a significant role in anticipating social entrepreneurship of staffs.
