The European Pact for Youth was a flagship initiative of CSR Europe. Initiated by CSR Europe, it is a mutual engagement of business and the European Union leaders. It brings together representatives for business, education and youth, and the European institutions in order to boost the number and quality of business-education partnerships for youth employability and inclusion.
In addition, the Pact set out to establish 100,000 new good quality apprenticeships, traineeships or entry-level jobs. Furthermore, the Pact stakeholders will contribute to EU and national policies on skills for competitiveness and employability. This will be achieved through joint policy proposals by the Leaders of the Pact, as well as 28 national action plans established in the individual Member States by our national partners.
