    http://www.s4ye.org: Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) is a multi-stakeholder coalition among public sector, private sector, and civil society actors that aims to provide leadership and resources for catalytic action to increase the number of young people engaged in productive work. While there are numerous youth employment initiatives being implemented across the globe, S4YE’s focus is on developing and delivering innovative second generation of youth employment programs – especially those that explicitly link supply side and demand-side interventions, and work together with the private sector. Traditional programs have focused mainly on “supply side” interventions (e.g., training, counseling, job search assistance, etc.) and have had limited impacts on jobs. The coalition intends to ...

  • Global employment trends for youth 2013 - A generation at risk

    An estimated 73.4 million young people - 12.6 per cent -- are expected to be out of work in 2013, and the picture is only set to get worse say Sara Elder and Theo Sparreboom, authors of the Global Employment Trends for Youth 2013 report. Youth face persistent unemployment, a proliferation of temporary jobs and growing discouragement in advanced economies; and poor quality, informal, subsistence jobs in developing countries. There is no one-size-fits-all solution, but as Sara Elder and Theo Sparreboom explain, there are measures that governments - as well as trade unions and employers - can take to boost youth employment. ** Les tendances mondiales de l'emploi des jeunes 2013 -- une génération en danger ** Environ 73,4 millions de jeunes -- 12,6 pour cent -- seront au chômage en 2013,...

  • Youth Guarantee - Youth Employment

    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. EU decided to create a Youth Employment Initiative setting aside €6 billion for the period 2014-2020 to be allocated to regions where youth unemployment exceeds 25%. These funds will be available to implement the Youth Guarantee.

  • Collaborating to Solve Youth Employment in Africa

    Sub-Saharan Africa faces a paradox that has global relevance and implications: it will be home to the largest youth population in the world by 2050 and although literacy rates (by 6%) and education enrollment rates (by 9%) have been on the rise, youth unemployment continues to hover above 60% across the region. How will African youth create or secure sustainable and meaningful livelihoods? And more specifically, who is responsible for youth employment in Africa?  With this in mind, we will be posing the closing question "What does successful cross-sector collaboration look like?" during the closing webinar and concurrent twitter chat for the Fair Observer series on September 17th: "Collaborating to Solve Youth Employment".

An area of particular focus is on connecting young people to digital jobs. A strong theme in all of S4YE’s operations and innovation focus is on evidence building through robust evaluations. Active youth voice and engagement will be a key element in all of S4YE’s governance, strategy and operations.

Les jeunes se heurtent à un chômage persistant, la prolifération des emplois temporaires et un découragement croissant dans les économies avancées ; et à des emplois médiocres, informels, de subsistance, dans les pays en développement. Il n'y a pas de remède miracle, mais comme le montrent Sara Elder et Theo Sparreboom, il y a des mesures que les gouvernements -- et aussi les syndicats et les employeurs -- peuvent prendre pour relancer l'emploi des jeunes. ** Tendencias Mundiales del Empleo Juvenil 2013 -- Una generación en peligro ** Se prevé que unos 73,4 millones de jóvenes, el 12,6% mundial, pierda su empleo en 2013, y según Sara Elder y Theo Sparreboom, autores del informe Tendencias Mundiales del Empleo Juvenil 2013, esa cifra podría ser peor. En las economías avanzadas los jóvenes afrontan situaciones de desempleo prolongadas, trabajos temporales y un creciente descontento, y en los países en desarrollo, trabajos de subsistencia informales de baja calidad. Aunque no existe una solución general, como explican Sara Elder y Theo Sparreboom, los gobiernos, sindicatos y empleadores pueden adoptar medidas encaminadas a promover el empleo.

Sub-Saharan Africa faces a paradox that has global relevance and implications: it will be home to the largest youth population in the world by 2050 and although literacy rates (by 6%) and education enrollment rates (by 9%) have been on the rise, youth unemployment continues to hover above 60% across the region. How will African youth create or secure sustainable and meaningful livelihoods? And more specifically, who is responsible for youth employment in Africa?  With this in mind, we will be posing the closing question "What does successful cross-sector collaboration look like?" during the closing webinar and concurrent twitter chat for the Fair Observer series on September 17th: "Collaborating to Solve Youth Employment". JOIN THE COMMUNITYTune in for a big 'Innovation Challenge' announcement! Calling the next generation of changemakers addressing youth employment in Africa! We are excited to share a big announcement about an innovation challenge during the upcoming webinar. Join in and help us find the best solutions by spreading the word on social media.  Join us for the Hangout on Air and concurrent twitter chat conversation using the #africayouthfwd  and  #socentchat hashtags.
