Creating quality jobs for young people is our priority, says EU Commissioner Andor

Under the Youth Guarantee, EU Member States will ensure that all young people up to 25 years of age receive a good quality offer of employment, an apprenticeship or a traineeship or the chance to continue their education within four months of leaving school or becoming unemployed, said László Andor, European Commissioner responsible for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, at the G20 Labour and Employment Ministers Meeting in Moscow.

We want to mobilise all players and instruments to make the Youth Guarantee work, while improving the way public institutions and businesses work together. The good news is that all these major stakeholders committed strongly to the scheme, opening the way to a full and rapid implementation, added Commissioner Andor, announced the press service of the European Commission.

The Youth Guarantee will also receive upfront investments. An additional 6 billion euro from the EU budget will support the Youth Guarantees in the Member States, said Andor.
