Young people are disadvantaged in labour markets because they lack job seeking insights, work experience and networks.
In Australia, around a fifth of young people (21%) have reported a lack of networks as a key barrier to employment (Kahn et al 2011). Programs that include work experience have been found to be valuable in broadening and developing the work-related networks of young people (Mann 2012b).
