Youth Guarantee – From Vision to Reality (Roundtable Event)
On June 12th we held a roundtable event ‘Youth Guarantee: From Vision to Reality’ to look at ways of tackling youth unemployment and in particular how to make the Youth Guarantee scheme a reality for young jobseekers.
The Youth Guarantee is a scheme that would ensure young people on the live register for four months or more have an opportunity of employment, education or training.
Damien English, T.D. Chairman of the Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Innovation and Enterprise formally opened the day’s proceedings.
The event was organised in partnership with the European Youth Forum to bring together representatives of Government Departments, members of the Oireachtas, state agencies, youth workers, youth and community organizations, academics and think tanks to look at practical responses to youth unemployment and in particular the implementation of the Youth Guarantee scheme. We received support from the European Commission Representation in Ireland.
