İt is fact that they come face to face with many challenges after the global economic crisis affected the European Union. The most obvious indicator is the high increase of unemployment among young people across the European Union. In July 2015, the number of unemployed young people in European Region became 5,5 million and as a result the rate of unemployment of young people increased to 23,4%. Also, the number of unemployed young people aged over 15 was 3,1 million and the unemployment rate stood at 10,3% in Turkey. In the content of European 2020 Strategy, the employment rate is targeted to reach 75% by 2020, and to reduce the young people’s unemployment rate, it is necessary to improve young people’s transition of the youth labor market. To ensure the young people’s entrance of the labor market, it is important to train their knowledge and skills that are needed by the labor market while the community become more important among labor market.
