A Guide to Understanding and Start to Address the Youth Employability / Skills Gap
How can we prepare and productively employ youth at living wages with growing opportunities in environments of mutual respect?
The purpose of this publication is to demonstrate how the youth skills gap is a solvable problem. The private sector possesses an inherent understanding of the skill sets in demand and has the ability to support curriculum and appropriate skills development. Strategic partnerships between private sector employers, vocational trainers, and public sector education systems can lead the way to prosperity and purpose for tomorrow’s workforce.
The principles and questions that follow are based on a synthesis of the skills gap working group outcomes from the Global Engagement Forum: Live, supplemented by the Global Center on Youth Employment from RTI International.
