The Youth Guarantee country by country

The implementation of the Youth Guarantee has started in all EU countries and is already bringing results. Compared to other structural reforms in Europe, the Youth Guarantee is probably one of the most rapidly implemented.

All EU countries have presented comprehensive Youth Guarantee Implementation Plans.

The plans identify the measures to be taken to implement the Youth Guarantee in each Member State. They outline timelines for youth employment reforms and measures, the roles of public authorities and other organisations, and how these activities will be financed.

Use the drop-down menu or the map above to find:

  • The implementation plan for a specific country, when published. All plans are published under the responsibility of the corresponding Member State.
  • National Youth Guarantee websites if available, with regular updates and/or the possibility for young people to register online.

The implementation of national plans is now underway. EU countries are making substantial efforts to implement the Youth Guarantee, which has proven to be a driver for structural reforms. The Joint Employment Report 2018 and Joint Employment Report 2019  list promising steps with concrete examples in many countries.
