YEN Youth Portal

Welcome to the YEN Youth Portal! The YEN recognises the value of youth engagement in tackling youth employment challenges at all levels and is committed to promoting youth participation. The Secretariat actively supports this commitment in a number of ways, including developing and implementing youth participation mechanisms; mobilizing youth groups in Lead countries; and conducting workshops to build the capacity of youth groups to participate effectively in the National Action Plan on youth employment process. This page acts as a gateway for youth participation in YEN and other youth employment activities. ENJOY!
