Employment is one of the top national agenda across the world. More specifically, youth employment is more challenging as the current economic downturn has hit youth hard. According to ILO’s global employment trends released in 2010, almost 40% (83 millions) of the unemployed people in the world are youth aged 15-24.
Many youth leave school without developing the skills they need to succeed in the workplace or in postsecondary education. They are the future to build the foundations of the societies as strong members of civil society. To this end, the concept of ‘youth transition to work’ is extremely crucial in linking young people to livelihood and employment. In this session, discussions will be on how to set up the mechanism of close connection between school and labor market and on how to make youth transition to work smoothly.
