Youth employment : making it happen

CD ROM - an electronic resource tool for employers

Instructional material | 01 January 2008
Provides an overview of youth employment challenges and the role of the private sector in promoting access of young people to work as well as a compendium of useful resources. Includes 40 cases organized by country and topic (policy making and advocacy, skills development and training and self-employment and entrepreneurship).

This tool is part of an ongoing effort by the ILO, together with the International Organization for Employers (IOE), to strengthen the capacity of employers’ organizations to engage in youth employment, especially in developing and transition countries. While a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this domain exist worldwide, this information is not necessarily available to employers who might most need it, particularly in countries where the youth employment challenge is more acute.
