http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=1036 Some 5.5 million young people on the EU labour market cannot find a job, and 7.5 million young people aged 15-24 are NEETs - not in employment, education or training. EU countries will be introducing Youth Guarantee, to ensure that all young people up to age 25 receive a quality offer of a job, continued education, an apprenticeship or a traineeship within four months of leaving formal education or becoming unemployed.

These funds will be available to implement the Youth Guarantee.
