National Youth Agency of Argentina commits to Decent Jobs for Youth

The National Youth Institute (INJUVE), has announced its commitment  to the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth. INJUVE commits to implementing periodic federal events to provide employment opportunities in domestic and regional companies and build employability for young people aged 18 to 30.

The National Youth Institute (created by Decree 174/2018) is a decentralized public entity under the National Ministry of Health and Social Development. This commitment, that aims to benefit 200,000 young people, will be delivered through the Future Fair for youth from the ages of 16-29 seeking to improve their employability conditions and provide tools and opportunities for entering the labour market. The commitment will help young people establish contacts with companies, and access work and skill-related training by the government.


The Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development

Decent Jobs for Youth was launched in 2016 as a UN system-wide effort, focusing on the youth employment challenge that is central to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It has emerged as a global, multi-stakeholder initiative that brings together governments, social partners, the private sector, youth and civil society organizations, and others. They work together to share knowledge, leverage resources and take action at country and regional level, to support young people in accessing decent work and productive employment worldwide.

INJUVE’s commitment is coordinated by the National Youth Institute, in collaboration with the Ministry of Production and Labour, and it contributes to thematic priority areas associated with digital skills for youth, transitions to the formal economy, and young workers in hazardous occupations.
