Digital Opportunities:
Innovative ICT Solutions for
Youth Employment
Committed to Connecting the World
 ITU conducted extensive
research on Digital
Opportunities to find
“Innovative ICT solutions for
Youth Employment”
 Mapping of:
 ICT-enabled careers for youth
 New entrepreneurship options
 New learning opportunities
 Action by Governments,
Private Sector, NGOs
 ITU recently launched a new

Committed to Connecting the World
Today’s youth are facing
unemployment challenges
3
73 MILLION
YOUTH ARE
UNEMPLOYED
GLOBALLY
- 621 million NEETs
- Youth comprise 17% of the
world’s population and 40% of the
world’s unemployed (ILO, 2013)
Skills mismatch
• Between what employers
seek and how youth have
been trained/educated
• Digital literacy skills as
important as reading and
writing
• More advanced digital
skills opens new
opportunities:
• BPO and microwork
• Apps economy
• Games and social
media
• Mobile phones
Committed to Connecting the World

Wide range of
ICT-enabled
resources to seek
jobs or launch
businesses
Why include ICTs in
youth employment and
entrepreneurship strategies?
 To promote youth employment it is essential that youth
obtain digital skills.
 Youth without digital skills risk being excluded from a
growing number of job and business opportunities.
More jobs and
businesses
require ICT
skills
ICTs fueling
new and
innovative
ways of doing
business
More online
learning
opportunities

Crowdsourcing
• Similar to microwork
but for people with
higher-level
technical skills and
involves larger
projects.
App Economy
• A new class of
entrepreneurs with
the rise of
smartphones,
tablets and social
media.
Committed to Connecting the World
