Creating High-Impact Employment Experiences for Youth

EY and MasterCard Center for Inclusive Growth

The societal benefits of lifting a generation out of unemployment and underemployment are well-established. Additionally, a growing number of companies are now discovering that, quite apart from social good, youth inclusion in the workplace can reap significant business dividends too.

EY’s 2015 Global Job Creation and Youth Entrepreneurship Survey found that 62% of leading entrepreneurs are mentoring young people and 59% offer internships and apprenticeships. They may be on to something.

Youth Hold the Key: Building Your Workforce Today and in the Future

The Bridgespan Group and Bain & Company

“Without youth, our stores would close,” said one employer at a 2014 roundtable on youth employment, expressing the views of many firms that rely heavily on young workers to fill entry-level jobs. “We wouldn’t be able to keep up with the times technologically, with social media, and so on.

An estimated 18 million Ethiopian children aged 5-17 engage in some form of work—almost a fourth of the population.

Promoting formal employment among youth: innovative experiences in Latin America and the Caribbean

International Labour Organization

The Latin American and Caribbean region faces the daunting challenge of creating decent work opportunities for youth. Currently, the region has some 108 million people aged 15 to 24. Just over half of them are employed.

When youth begin their working lives, they must first overcome the high unemployment rate, which is two to four times higher than that of adults in the Region. All too often, young people go out in search of work only to return home discouraged.

Youth and rural development: Evidence from 25 school-to-work transition surveys

International Labour Organization

Youth is a crucial time of life when young people start realizing their aspirations, assuming their economic independence and finding their place in society. The global jobs crisis has exacerbated the vulnerability of young people in terms of: (i) higher unemployment, (ii) lower quality jobs for those who find work, (iii) greater labour market inequalities among different groups of young people, (iv) longer and more insecure schoolto-work transitions, and (v) increased detachment from the labour market.
