Youth employment lies within the general employment policy. The Regions and the Federal Entity are both competent for employment policy with their own field of action. Initiatives to support youth employment are mainly taken at Regional level. This chapter illustrates the relevant initiatives and actors which support youth employment both in the Brussels Region and the Walloon Region.
The unemployment of young people both in the Walloon Region and the Region of Brussels-Capital is concerning even if the rate has decreased. The employment Agencies, Forem (Wallonia) and Actiris (Brussels), offer support measures to young people. The development of entrepreneurship competence is a really important policy both in the Walloon Region and the Region of Brussels-Capital.
