The Youth Guarantee was implemented in Luxembourg in June 2014 upon a recommendation of the European Council of April 2013.
It requires from the Government to implement a series of measures to provide to every young person aged between 16 and 25 a job offer, additional training, vocational training or an internship within 4 months after leaving school or losing a job.
The Youth Guarantee is not an employment guarantee. It is based on the commitment of the relevant governmental services (Agence pour le développement de l’emploi - ADEM, National Youth Service (Service national de la jeunesse - SNJ), local youth offices, etc.) to provide quality guidance for young people to find a job, to re-enrol in a school or participate in a project such as the voluntary service (Service volontaire).
Young people are offered a personalised course of action based on their profile, personal situation and aspirations.
