Youth Guarantee implementation moving forward
Member States are currently on the way to implement Youth Guarantee schemes. The Youth Guarantee Recommendation was adopted in April 2013 and is part of the Youth Employment Package; it is aimed at contributing to reduce critical levels of youth unemployment in Europe by making sure that young people under 25 cannot stay more than four months after finishing education or becoming unemployed without being proposed a job, an internship, a training, etc. On 9 September the Commission met with coordinators of 18 Youth Guarantee pilot projects (see press release for details) implemented in 7 countries to review the progress made; project should give concrete elements to Member States to help them setting up national schemes.
