Given globally high rates of youth unemployment, labor economists have been debating innovative measures to help youth, especially disadvantaged ones, find and retain jobs. We spoke with Jochen Kluve, Professor of Empirical Labor Economics, School of Business and Economics, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, about which types of training programs work best. He stressed the need to make programs comprehensive – combining skills training, coaching, and work practices. He also noted that a lot of work is now being done to evaluate the usefulness of life skills training, including communication, teamwork, timeliness, and responsibility.
