Youth Guarantee

The Youth Guarantee is an important initiative to tackle youth unemployment and social exclusion and has the potential to make a difference in the life of millions of young people in Europe. Decision makers must continue to support the scheme for it to become an EU-wide right accessible to all young people, and to ensure that the offers under the programme become more sustainable and qualitative, leading to real opportunities.

Together with our member organisations, we continue to monitor the progress of the Youth Guarantee.

Since the beginning of the crisis, the European Youth Forum has worked to ensure that no young person was left behind and that youth organisations were supported in their solidarity actions. With this European Youth Blueprint to Recovery, we present a series of policy recommendations aiming at influencing the institutional response to the crisis.
