Youth Main Power in the Field of Unemployment (YMPFU) is a Education and training are key determinants of success in the labour market. The objective of skills training interventions for youth is to develop or update employment-relevant competencies and skills. This way, youth are more interesting for employers to hire, and are generally better equipped to find and keep a decent job.
