The overall objective of the Initiative is:

"To improve the implementation and impact of youth employment practices, in order to create more and better jobs for young people."

The immediate objectives which will contribute to the general objective, are:

  • To identify, share and disseminate good practices in youth employment;
  • To contribute to the interaction dialogue between participants in order to consolidate and strengthen networks and alliances, and thereby reduce duplication of effort;
  • To increase the visibility of successful youth employment programmes;
  • To develop an evaluation mechanism which allows identifying best practices, what works and what does not;
  • To develop technical assistance tools and establish and make public specific recommendations on ways to strengthen and improve the impact of youth employment programmes;
  • To provide guidance to governments and other stakeholders in the design and implementation of youth employment programmes.
