The International Labour Organization (ILO) commissioned a study find out the barriers and disparities in accessing and availing the employment programs by the youth, especially female youth and draft policy recommendations to remove the barriers and enhance the labor participation of the young females in Pakistan. The study was conducted on national level. The study revealed that unemployed youth flashed lack of opportunities, appropriate education and experience as reasons for their unemployment. Cultural values were the least important reason of not being employed specifically among females. Most of the employed youth expressed that specific prior skills are required to perform their job but a large number (45percent) are still unaware of any training program to develop the required skills.
