According to the United Nations, there are 1.2 billion Youth aged between 15 and 24 years old around the world.
> 375 million Youth are working in insecure, unsafe, informal, indecent conditions, representing 75% of the 500 million employed Youth. With the crisis, 42% of them got fewer incomes (the salary being already low for young workers), and 45 million completely lost their jobs.
> In 2021 75 million Youth were not employed, 732 were not educated, or trained. The crisis increased their level of exclusion (ILO, 2022).
In slum areas, if the situation was complicated before, it became unsustainable.
> For the remaining Youth who were studying, most of the educational systems switched to digital with the crisis. However, deprived of digital equipment, internet or electricity most of the time, the excluded Youth are the most concerned by school dropouts and will never go back to school after such a long break in their studies.
The Youth exclusion situation calls to urgent actions.
Young adults need our help to get control over their lives, to give them a chance to access a more decent situation by integrating the corporate world.
