3. Employment & entrepreneurship

This chapter describes youth policy in the field of employment and entrepreneurship in Luxembourg. Employment and entrepreneurship have become an important youth policy field in Luxembourg during the last years. This development is related to the increasing youth unemployment rate, which shows that the transition from the educational system into employment represents a critical phase for many young people in Luxembourg (see: 3.1 General context). The policy has introduced new strategies and offers to tackle these challenges: the career guidance and counselling services have been integrated into one structure (House of Guidance), the 'youth guarantee' has been implemented and the voluntary services for young people with low qualifications has been extended. Furthermore, the Local Youth Action (main career guidance and counselling service on the local level) has been integrated into the National Youth Service.
