As a part of the pan-Europe initiative, Pact4Youth Europe, Pact4Youth Sweden is a multi-sectoral partnership dedicated to the inclusion of all youth through employment or entrepreneurship within the STEM fields – giving all youth an equal chance to lead fulfilling and full lives.
This is a place for all stakeholders to find inspiration, resources, and new partnerships.
Pact4Youth Sweden Strives to:
1. Increase cooperation between companies, schools, and other sectors.
2. Reduce inequalities in the skills of young people.
3. Strengthen models for youth to find their role in their work life.
The employment reality for youth- The overall unemployment rate in Sweden is quite low at 6.2% in 2017, but youth unemployment is comparatively high at 14.6%. The majority of unemployed youth find employment within a relatively short period of time. Pact4Youth Sweden supports the youth that are marginalized in society, and face additional obstacles to gaining a firm foothold in the labour market – youth with an incomplete secondary education, those with backgrounds from outside of the EU, and youth with disabilities.
