Obstacles to young people's growth and potential

image of Obstacles to young people's growth and potential

Despite evidence in recent years of greater attention to young people, including through successful public policy initiatives, youth as a whole still confront many obstacles that keep them from safely transitioning into adulthood and the workforce. Tens of millions do not go to school, or if they do, they miss even minimum benchmarks for learning. Employment prospects are often dismal, with jobs unavailable or poor in quality, leading to a worsening global youth unemployment crisis. Up to 60 per cent of young people in developing regions are not working or in school, or have only irregular employment.
