PES Ministers - the Youth Guarantee is a success story: it must be extended

PES Ministers for Employment and Social Affairs met on 12 October in Luxembourg to discuss the future of the European Youth Guarantee.

In 2012, the PES successfully campaigned for a European Youth Guarantee to ensure that every young person under the age of 25 receives either a job, apprenticeship or traineeship offer, or a place in continued education within four months after finishing school or becoming unemployed. Having since pushed for its comprehensive implementation, the Ministers welcome the evaluation of the Youth Guarantee that the European Commission published on 4 October.
