What Works? A Guide to Action
Generation Unlimited


Generation Unlimited and the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth are two multi-stakeholder alliances working together to mobilize action and foster skills, employment and the meaningful participation of young people across the globe. By bringing young people together with governments, social partners, the private sector, and a range of international and local organizations, they connect secondary-age education and training to a complex and fast-changing world of work, while easing the transition of young people into decent jobs. Efforts are also being made to foster youth-led entrepreneurship and empower a generation of young people to fully engage as part of their societies.

These brochures are primers on what young people are demanding and reflect strategic priorities of Generation Unlimited and Decent Jobs for Youth.

They cover the following topics:

  • Secondary education and skills

  • School to work transition

  • Youth entrepreneurship and self-employment

  • Creating decent jobs for youth

  • Young people’s participation and civic engagement
