World Youth Skills Day is a United Nations designated event dedicated to the importance of equipping young people around the world with essential skills for employment, work, and entrepreneurship. The events of the day provide an opportunity for dialogue between young people, firms, employers’ and workers’ organizations, policy makers, technical and vocational education and training institutions, and development

The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed July 15 in 2014 as World Youth Skills Day to recognise the strategic significance of preparing young people for work environments, dignified labour, and entrepreneurship. It is hoped that it will contribute to reducing unemployment and underemployment among the youth across the globe. It will highlight youth skills development to draw attention to the critical need for marketable skills. Inspiring, educating and developing youth is an integral part of this.

The World Youth Skills Day 2021 will pay tribute to the resilience and creativity of youth through the crisis. Participants will take stock of how TVET systems have adapted to the pandemic and recession, think of how those systems can participate in the recovery, and imagine priorities they should adopt for the post-COVID-19-world.

This year, the World Youth Skills Day will once again take place amidst the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The United Nations will pay tribute to the resilience and creativity of youth through the pandemic and its subsequent crisis.
