European Commission makes 1 billion euro available for the young unemployed
All member states have committed to the “Youth Guarantee“: to provide young people under 25 with a quality job offer, an apprenticeship or training. The Commission now proposed to make 1 billion euro from the Youth Employment Initiative (YEI) available as early as this year. This change plans to increase by up to 30 times the pre-financing Member States receive to boost youth employment—reaching up to 650 000 young people and helping them get into work.
