Problem

Difficulty of youth transition from school to work

Other Names:
Occupational difficulties in adolescence
Claim:
In many cases, and notably in the USA, the schooling received does not adequately prepare young people for work. Many are inept at finding and holding a job. They receive little guidance on how to move into a career that can support a family. Often their reading, writing, match and communication skills are largely inadequate for the demands of quality employers.
