Digital Jobs for Youth: Young Women in the Digital Economy

The Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) just shared their annual report Digital Jobs for Youth: Young Women in the Digital Economy.

The report provides operation recommendations for the design and implementation of gender-inclusive digital jobs interventions for youth. Co-authored by S4YE coalition members Rockefeller Foundation, Plan International, RAND Corporation, and the World Bank Group, the report develops a new typology of digital jobs and draws insights from nineteen case studies based on past and ongoing employment programs implemented or supported by S4YE coalition members that connected youth with digital jobs opportunities.

S4YE is a multi-stakeholder coalition among the public sector, the private sector and the civil society that aims to provide leadership and resources for catalytic action to increase the number of young people engaged in productive work. This coalition includes the World Bank, Accenture, The Rockefeller Foundation, Mastercard Foundation, Microsoft, Plan International, International Youth Foundation (IYF), Youth Business International (YBI), RAND Corporation, the International Labour Organization (ILO), the Governments of Norway, Germany, and the UN Envoy for Youth.
