One of the main principles underlying the purpose of the Youth Act is cross-sectoral co-operation as such. The key instrument for cross-sectorial youth policy is the National Youth Work and Youth Policy Programme. The Ministry of Education and Culture, together with other ministries concerned, is a responsible for the preparation of the programme.

In addition, the national implementation of the Youth Guarantee since 2013 has proven to be an efficient measure for enhancing cross-sectorial cooperation. (See more in Youth Wiki/Finland 3. Employment and Entrepreneurship).
