Youth joblessness and underemployment are among the most challenging economic and social problems that we face in almost every country. Thus, governments and policymakers across the globe are intent on identifying policies and programs which increase the probability that jobless youth will find work, raise the productivity and income of the underemployed, and facilitate a transition from school to labor market without extended delay. YEI addresses this demand by identifying effective approaches to promote youth employment.
