About Solutions for Youth Employment

Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) is a multi-stakeholder coalition among public sector, private sector, and civil society actors that aims to provide leadership and resources for catalytic action to increase the number of young people engaged in productive work. The S4YE coalition was founded, in partnership, by Accenture, International Labour Organization (ILO), International Youth Foundation (IYF), Plan International, RAND Corporation, the World Bank, and Youth Business International (YBI).

About this Plan

This is the Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) five year strategic plan for 2015-2020.

The plan outlines the key areas of work and approaches that the coalition will adopt over this five year period. It is a living document that will be periodically reviewed and amended to reflect the changes within the coalition, as well as most critically, the changes in context, learning, partnerships, and resource flows that take place before 2020.

The S4YE coalition has an explicit commitment to work over a period of at least fifteen years to achieve its objectives. This timeline is proportionate to the size and scale of the challenge: of understanding and addressing constraints to employment that young people face. This plan is therefore, the first of three plans that will be developed before 2030.
