Countries in the South Mediterranean
region are subject to diverse social and economic challenges, which,
among other things, result in high youth unemployment rates, especially
for young women, a lower quality and relevance of education, and
insufficient skilled job opportunities in the labour market thus failing
to meet the needs of youth’s aspirations. In the meantime, workplace
experience as well as entrepreneurship and digital skills are
increasingly required to enter the world of work.

The Youth Employment in the Mediterranean
project (YEM), funded by the European Union and implemented by UNESCO
(2018-2020), is building on the achievements of the Employment Component
of the Networks of Mediterranean Youth project (NET-MED Youth). (link is external)

In alignment with UNESCO’s Strategy for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) 2016-2021 and in the framework of the Sustainable Development Goal 4,
YEM will address the issue of youth unemployment in the region by
improving skills anticipation and assessment systems, the quality and
relevance of TVET, and by fostering regional cooperation between the
eight beneficiary countries.
