5.7 million young people are currently unemployed in Europe and an additional 1.5 million are forced into precarious jobs. In some countries as many as one young person out of two cannot find a job.
The campaign “Your future is my future – a European Youth Guarantee now” is calling for a European Youth Guarantee as a way to tackle youth unemployment.
What is the European Youth Guarantee?
The European Youth Guarantee is a guarantee that ensures that every young person in Europe is offered a job, further education or work-focused training at the latest four months after leaving education or after becoming unemployed.
It can be implemented at European or at national level.
Join the campaign!
Together we can bring 2 million young people out of unemployment by 2014, by making a European Youth Guarantee a reality.
