In 2020, 85% of the world’s youth were displaced due to the pandemic. According to GYA’s prediction, majority of young people are faced with formal and informal unemployment.
Young people with a history of unemployment face fewer career development opportunities, lesser wage and low pension benefits.
Young people are the future of the world’s workforce and economy, yet relief efforts by policymakers have mostly overlooked them. Policymakers must center young people if they are to avert damages that could cripple a generation.
Some young people have disengaged from school due to lack of interest, funds or insecurity. Despite the Sustainable Development Goal to have every child in school and learning by 2030, there are still 260 million children who don’t go to primary or secondary school.
Without urgent action, in a decade 825 million children – half of all young people in the world – will not have the most basic skills necessary for jobs of the future.
