Finalist: The Youth Guarantee

Public Vote
Rank # 18

After the economic crisis, the essential problem among young people is unemployment. The main obstacles that hinder young people to get a job are the lack of experience and a low educational level for the labor market. Different inquiries show that young people aged 15–29 work for a minimal wage, they are not educated enough to earn more. The Youth Guarantee project comes to help and tackles the problem - it provides the vocational education young people need to be successful.
