Youth Livelihoods


Expand the global evidence-base and disseminate findings of how young people transition from school to work

Why We Partnered

The partnership between The MasterCard Foundation and the ILO will dramatically increase the global knowledge base on how young people transition from education to stable employment and create tools to inform youth employment policies and programs worldwide. Surveys from 28 countries in five global regions will produce a series of comprehensive and analytical national, regional, and global reports on youth employment. The program will create global databases that will be widely available to UN and bilateral agencies, international organizations, ministries of labour, policymakers, employers, foundations, academia, and young people.
