However, financing such training programs can be a challenging task, and many youth beneficiaries are not able to afford training fees. Without support from donors or external funders, programs may not be able to implement their training activities long-term.

Programming Partner: The Rockefeller Foundation Description: According to the International Labor Organization, approximately 73 million young people are unemployed. As a generation that is three times more likely to be out of work, today’s youth, from Europe to the Americas, face growing instability and scenarios of what is typically referred to as “working poverty.” Building on efforts to productively engage and secure livelihoods for this generation of opportunity youth, international governments, the private sector, and civil society have attempted to re-shape traditional employment pathways for the next generation of workers. By gauging pre-employment skill sets, offering on-the-job training, emphasizing skills acquisition and development, as well as designing retention programs, employers can successfully align skills training with current work opportunities. In healthcare, information technology, business and range of other sectors, the employer driven approach not only helps bridge the gap between unemployed youth and the employers that need skilled talent, but also works on the creation of a more inclusive economy. Moreover, employers not only witness a high return on investment in terms low turnover rates, but also create shared value in terms of increased diversity in the workforce, higher employee engagement, and corporate social responsibility.
