“Unemployment levels are alarmingly high, concealing many different realities and causes that often run deep”- Herman Van
Rompuy, President of the European Council, June 2013;Youth unemployment is considered by many to be one of the most pressing issues facing European governments, and is high on the agenda of EU leaders.According to recent statistics the average EU28 youth unemployment rate (age 15-24) is equal to 23.4% with significant heterogeneity across European countries which has been further strengthened after the economic downturn leading some advanced economies to reach the highest levels of youth unemployment ever recorded -SOURCE:EENEE Analytical Report No. 22 prepared for the European Commission;
There are many reasons behind the problem of youth unemployment, for example: lack of particular skills, wrong educational system, mismatches between education and needs in labor market, lack of self confidence, lack of self esteem, and of course structural lack of working places.Young people are more likely to be unemployed than adults.
