Youth Employment

For children and young people to realise their right to economic security and access the resources necessary for meaningful employment.

Plan International supports young people to make informed choices about their work. We help them access the knowledge, skills and services necessary to secure productive, decent work, and to access financial services. We work to ensure the inclusion of those who are marginalized – especially adolescent girls – so that they can take act to improve their lives.         

Working with national and local governments, we advocate for state and community support in times of economic difficulty, to enable children and young people to continue their development, and promote policies that support economic activity. We also work with the private sector and civil society to ensure that economic opportunities are available, sustainable and have the best possible impact on children’s lives.
