WE HAVE A DREAM: fullfilling the Promise of Youth Guarantee

In 2014, the Youth Guarantee NOW -project mapped various Youth Guarantee-related issues in Southwestern Finland by conducting extensive surveys and interviews and bringing experts together in seminars and workshops. This publication contains the Youth Guarantee vision as well as the action and implementation plan that was born out of these activities.

The contents of the vision as well as the action and implementation plan were based on the following:

1. Youth Guarantee surveys

The project completed three Youth Guarantee surveys with a total of 363 participants. Of these, 111 were young people either in school or in other youth services, 86 worked in the public or third sector, and 166 were entrepreneurs and employers.

2. Youth Guarantee seminars and workshops

A total of 181 people participated in the five seminars/workshops organized by the project.

3. Expert interviews

The project conducted in-depth interviews with 25 experts. In addition to supporting Youth Guarantee work in the Turku region, both the vision and the action and implementation plan are intended as tools for actors interested in developing and implementing the Youth Guarantee in the EU and elsewhere.

More about the Youth Guarantee NOW project

The Youth Guarantee NOW project was implemented in the Turku region in Finland in 2014. Its aim was to support the Youth Guarantee by promoting collaboration between different authorities and actors as well as mapping the practices and operational models that help or hinder the implementation of Youth Guarantee.
