First experiences on the labour market have a profound influence on later working life. This report on the United States contains a survey of the main barriers to employment for young people, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to improve the transition from school-to-work, and a set of policy recommendations for further action.

Remedial Education and Employability Measures

Youth who have disconnected from the education system and are not working or planning to return to training are at high risk of marginalisation. Some of these young people are homeless, have disabilities, have left foster care and/or are known to the justice system. As a result, efforts to create programmes that succeed in reconnecting these at-risk young people to education, the labour market and society more generally as early as possible are key.
