APYouthNet discussion forum consolidated product 4: Vulnerable youth

Synthesis of the Asia-Pacific Knowledge Network on Youth Employment (APYN) fourth discussion forum that took place 16 March - 4 April 2010.

Young people are a great source of energy and ideas but in some circumstances the opportunity to harness those advantages can be obstructed. Each of these streams highlighted different situations in which young people can face challenges, which range from inequality, discrimination, abuse, exploitation, exclusion and violence. In the face of these obstacles, young people can struggle to reach their full potential.
