Thanks to your help, the youth guarantee is a reality. Join our upgraded campaign for a Youth Plan
The youth guarantee campaign was a success and this guarantee is now a reality.
However, youth unemployment is still an issue in Europe and there is much to do to improve young people's chances at a better future.
In this sense, we have launched the Youth Plan campaign, calling for:
- a permanent youth guarantee to be extended to people until 30 years old
- an extended Erasmus programme that includes vocational and high-school students
- culture cheques to provide access to young people to culture
- a child guarantee: access to free healthcare, free education, free childcare, decent housing and adequate nutrition
The youth guarantee campaign
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.
