Youth Tracker Issue 3

This is the third edition of Youth Tracker, the quarterly newsletter looking at how Britain’s young people are faring in the recession, and what we can do to support them. A lot has happened since the last edition: Britain is now formally out of recession and a general election campaign is in full swing. Nevertheless, around 900,000 young people remain out of employment, education or training, with a serious risk of being ‘left behind’ by society. In this issue a number of organisations talk about what they are doing to build the skills and experiences necessary for young people to meet the challenges of citizenship, including an interview with the Chief Executive of new charity City Year London.
