BACKGROUND NOTE

It is becoming increasingly common for young people older than 18 years old to remain at home, supported at least partially by their parents payroll, particularly while they are completing their studies. In fact, never have so many members of younger generations been so dependent on their parents and grandparents for so long.
 
The inability to find employment creates a sense of uselessness and idleness among young people that can lead to increased crime, mental health problems, violence, conflicts and drug taking. As education, poverty and psychological bonds are dynamic phenomena with strong intergenerational effects, failure to act now jeopardizes the social integration of future generations.
 
In this regard, getting a job is the first step into social integration and poverty eradication, but there is also an increasing number of young people, often in emerging and developing countries, who live in poverty despite having a job. That is why, a decent job is a necessary requirement and a key strategy for youth integration and poverty eradication, not only by itself, but as a starting point for being able to found a family and contribute to social development in a sustainable way.
 
Cfr. Global Employment Trends for Youth 2017.
 
Expected Outcomes:
 
- Share best practices on building paths to social integration and poverty eradication for youth.
 
- Incentive an educational offer able to create decent job opportunities.
 
- Understand how the private sector can participate in the vocational training process.
 
- Find ways to engage youth in the analysis and decision making process.
