World Youth Skills Day

Updated: May 10, 2022

In 2014, the United Nations General Assembly declared 15 July as World Youth Skills Day, “to celebrate the strategic importance of equipping young people with skills for employment, decent work and entrepreneurship”.

In these times of global pandemic, it is more than ever important to celebrate this day.

> Schools were either fully or partially closed for more than 30 weeks between March 2020 and May 2021 in half the countries of the world (UNESCO)

> Distance training has become the most common way of imparting skills, with considerable difficulties (e.g. curricula adaptation, connectivity, or assessment and certification processes ((ILO & the World Bank))

> Global Youth employment fell by 8.7% in 2020, compared with 3.7% for adults (ILO)

Within the YIN, we act for the Youth and adapt our methods in order to support them with professional skills despite difficulties and changing environments.

During the first 6 months of 2021, the YIN corporate members provided Youth with 124 ACTIVITIES (company visits, mock interviews, training, recruitment) that trained and inspired 751 young PARTICIPANTS.

We are proud to support the future of countries, young talents who deserve all our attention. If you want to start acting efficiently, contact us and let’s work together for the future of the Youth!
