Young people have a positive view of themselves and are confident to overcome social and professional challenges.
Young people can make informed decisions about managing money and have access to financial services

ECONOMY
WORKING POOR YOUTH
IRREGULAR EMPLOYMENT
EDUCATION
SOCIAL NETWORKS
LIFE SKILLS
ACCESS TO FINANCE
POWER TO CHANGE
621 Million youth NEET
neither in employment nor in education or training - so over half a billion unemployed youth are not registered as such!
600 million jobs in the next 10 years
need to be created to keep current unemployment rates as they are (that is 5 million each month!)
Young people have the competencies and skills to take up (self) employment opportunities for decent work
Young people can transition into adults living independent lives
