Ambitious goal of five municipalities:
All young people will be employed at least temporarily


JHL (31.01.2011 - Juhani Artto) Stakeholders in a new project believe that it is possible and imperative to organize at least temporary work for all young people who are not studying. The goal is ambitious as youth unemployment is high also in Finland. In November 2010 the unemployment rate of people from 15 to 24 years of age was 16.1 per cent.

The project is to be implemented in five municipalities: Vantaa, Kuopio, Kotka, Uusikaupunki and Huittinen. In the municipality of Vantaa (pop. 200,000) the challenge is to find work, by April 1, for about one thousand young unemployed people. The idea is to employ each of these unemployed people for at least two months to give them valuable and confidence boosting work experience. In Uusikaupunki the goal is even more ambitious, as the project aims to offer work for three or four months.

In each of the five municipalities the concrete project model will be developed locally, but the starting point in all is close cooperation between the municipality, local companies or local units of larger companies and local youth organizations. The government's employment authorities will also participate in the project.

The list of participating companies includes both multinationals, such as Microsoft and Pfizer, nationally big names, such as Lemminkäinen, Tieto, Veikkaus and Alma Media, and small companies.
