Increasing_the_employability_of_youth Increasing_the_employability_of_youth Presentation Transcript

  • Manthan Topic - Team Details - Rituraj  Singh  Sisodiya   Satya  Narayan   Sudhanshu  Singh   Praveen  Sharma  
  • Young  people  are  in  a  vulnerable  state  in  the  labour   market,  many  of  them  lacking  the  skills,  work  experience,  job-­‐ search  abili<es  and  financial  resources  to  find  employment.     The  global  economic  crisis  has  created  even  greater   challenges  for  youth.       Facing  a  premature  end  to  educa<on  and  deteriora<on  of   livelihoods  owing  to  financial  hardship,  many  find  that  the  only   work  open  to  them  involves  poor  working  condi<ons  and  low   wages.      
  • “With  less  experience  and  fewer  skills  than  many  adults,  young   people  oCen  encounter  par<cular  difficulty  accessing  work.       The  global  youth  unemployment  rate,  which  has  long  exceeded   that  of  other  age  groups,  saw  its  largest  annual  increase  on  record   in  2009;  at  its  peak,  75.8  million  young  people  were  unemployed.“    –  United  Na7ons  “World  Youth  Report”,  2012       “  
  • Figure  1:  Youth  unemployment  rates  by  region  (1991-­‐2012),  in  percentage  
  • Today  almost  one  person  in  five  is  between  the  ages  of  15  and  24  years.    Altogether  there  are  over  1.2  billion  youth  in  the  world.    The  majority  of  young  people  -­‐  about  90  per  cent  -­‐  live  in  developing   countries  with  60  per  cent  in  Asia  and  17  per  cent  in  Africa.       The  current  popula<on  of  young  people  in  developing  countries  is  the  largest   the  world  has  ever  seen  -­‐  around  1  billion.    It  will  reach  1.1  billion  by  2060  and  will  decline  only  gradually  thereaQer  
  • Enterprises  can  play  an  important  role  in  promo7ng  decent  work  for  youth.      They  can  par<cipate  in  the  formula<on  of  training  policies  that  meet  market   needs,  provide  work  experience  and  mentorships,  and  facilitate  the  access  of   youth  to  markets,  capital  and  networks   Establish  partnerships  with  public  and  private  actors  with,  for  example:                   (i)  Public  and  private  employment  services  for  the  iden7fica7on  of   jobseekers;     (ii)  Governments  and  other  partners  to  achieve  sustainable  results  for   youth  employment;     (iii)  Members  of  networks  of  companies  engaged  in  suppor7ng  youth   employment  programmes  and  corporate  social  responsibility  ini7a7ves.    
  • Achieving  decent  work  for  young  people  is  a  cri<cal  element  of  the   progression  towards  wealthier  economies,  fairer  socie<es  and   stronger  democracies.     Decent  work  means  “opportuni<es  for  women  and  men  to  obtain   decent  and  produc<ve  work  in  condi<ons  of  freedom,  equity,   security  and  human  dignity”    
  •       In  spite  of  the  aforemen<oned   challenge,  certain   program  features  stand  out  as   consistently   present  in  successful  youth   programs.      Effec<ve  programs,  regardless  of  the   youth  they  serve,   have  some  or  all  of  the  following  ten   characteris<cs.     These  characteris7cs  are  broken   down  into  four  categories:     Program  design  and   Content,  program  relevance,   program  delivery   and  Program  assessment  and  Quality   assurance  
  •       “Young  people  need  to  complete  at  least  the  basic  educa<on   cycle,  which  is  essen<al  for  further  skills  training  and  prospects   of  geZng  a  decent  job.”   .
