Inclusion Thorugh Employability

The economic crisis has made youth unemployment worse, particularly for unskilled and excluded youth. Young people all too often experience yo-yo trajectories in and out of short-term work, unemployment, training and education.

Youth work and youth projects have been in many cases successful in supporting young people with fewer opportunities into traineeships and jobs, sustainable jobs. This study has a closer look at what are the underlying success factors of those youth employment initiatives:


• Involvement and participation of young people with fewer opportunities in the design of the actions and programmes targeting them

• Holistic coordination and governance and an interdisciplinary long-term approach are needed.

• Non-formal learning as an essential tool to successfully equipping young people with the skills that will increase their employability.

• Development of entrepreneurship skills that allow them to take their own business initiatives.
