http://www.s4ye.org: Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) is a multi-stakeholder coalition among public sector, private sector, and civil society actors that aims to provide leadership and resources for catalytic action to increase the number of young people engaged in productive work. While there are numerous youth employment initiatives being implemented across the globe, S4YE’s focus is on developing and delivering innovative second generation of youth employment programs – especially those that explicitly link supply side and demand-side interventions, and work together with the private sector. Traditional programs have focused mainly on “supply side” interventions (e.g., training, counseling, job search assistance, etc.) and have had limited impacts on jobs. The coalition intends to develop and design a few blueprints of such second generation youth employment programs through its “Youth Employment Innovation Lab” and then pilot them in a few select countries. An area of particular focus is on connecting young people to digital jobs. A strong theme in all of S4YE’s operations and innovation focus is on evidence building through robust evaluations. Active youth voice and engagement will be a key element in all of S4YE’s governance, strategy and operations.

Africa's population of young people between the ages of 10-24 is estimated at 370 million. By 2070, it is estimated that the continent will have over 1 billion working age youth and over 800 million children. If the right human capital investments are made in Africa's youth, including quality education, decent employment, effective livelihood skills, and access to health, including sexual and reproductive health, then countries across the continent can potentially see an increase in GDP and per capita income. This is known as the demographic dividend, which occurs as fertility and mortality rates start to fall, leading to a larger working age population and huge potential for economic growth. Julitta Onabanjo talks about the importance of investing in young people, and outlines strategies that countries can employ to reap the demographic dividend and achieve sustainable development. Dr Julitta Onabanjo is Regional Director of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), East and Southern Africa. She studied medicine at the University of Zambia, has a Bachelor degree in biology from the University of London and a Master’s of Public Health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Dr Onabanjo has always had the desire to help people and has a passion for young people and helping them reach their potential and make contributions to their communities. This is clearly reflected in her work to fight child marriage in Africa, and other important programmes administered by UNPFA. https://twitter.com/julittaonabanjo UNFPA ESARO website: http://esaro.unfpa.org/ This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

If we were to summarise the main findings of the SAHWA national case study pertaining to Morocco, we would say that the youth are constantly torn between social, collective marginality and the individual, economic quest for autonomy. Not that political participation is absent – it is instrumental and multi-faceted, but not overtly predominant in the public sphere. This could be explained by the weak impact of education and employment policies on knowledge, the importance of virtual and alternative spaces for observing youth practices and giving them new opportunities, and the lack of confidence in institutions and migration alike. Young people’s representations, in the post-2011 context, are thus directed inwardly, more towards personal success than collective actions.

It is time to establish fundamental measures that can strengthen the Korean economy in a low fertility and aging society rather than focusing on short term policies to reduce youth unemployment. Despite various advantages of working overseas which creates jobs for young people, the current system and programs of working overseas are not well organized and do not bring the expected results. To increase the employment of young people, more job opportunities abroad, not only domestic jobs, should be promoted through cultivating global leaders and reinforcing national competitiveness. As globalization is progressing at an unprecedented pace, this session seeks to explore measures that could boost youth employment through creating more job opportunities overseas.

SPEAKER Alys Willman World Bank, Conflict, Social Development Specialist in the Crime and Violence Team TITLE Community-based Strategies to Reduce Youth Violence ABSTRACT The growing population of youth in developing countries is often seen as a threat to stability, and indeed, youth have often been protagonists in social and political unrest. Youth violence has often been considered a result of unemployment or idleness, leading to blanket responses providing (mostly temporary) employment for youth. These programs have often limited success because they do not address the complex driving factors for youth violence or the intergenerational tensions that reinforce stigma against youth. My talk will give an overview of what the World Bank has learned through our growing investment in youth-oriented projects, especially those with a violence prevention focus. I will describe how the Bank's general approach to youth is evolving from a focus on (mostly temporary) employment toward more integrated interventions that address the various drivers of youth exclusion and violence, as well as intergenerational tensions that reinforce stigma against youth. While evidence on impact is still scarce, there are indications of some promising practices, especially when targeted activities are combined with interventions to address underlying structural factors. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This lecture was organised as part of the WHO and University of Cambridge Global Violence Reduction Conference 2014.

By Nancy Brooks-Lane, M.S., LPC, LMFT Work is the most effective and efficient means for individuals with and without disabilities to have a life of meaning, connections, and value. Work also forms the bridge to a life “well-lived”. While definitions of employer engagement vary based on programmatic beliefs, recent practices have illuminated methodologies that result in quality outcomes when developing interest-based jobs. Best-practices in competitive and integrated employment will form the structure for this training while story telling will humanize examples of quality outcomes. Additionally, we will examine the principles from which we provide support to individuals with disabilities to have a life that includes work. Nancy Brooks-Lane’s diverse skills include: training, technical assistance and side by side mentoring in best practices; organizational and system change strategic planning; and aligning policy, funding, and change. She has assisted persons with significant disabilities obtain customized employment or start their own business and has mentored, trained and provided technical assistance to self-advocates, families, providers, citizen advocates, funders and social and political leaders in the processes of best practices and system change. https://rrtc.vcu.edu/
