Through the Joint Programme on Youth Employment and Migration (YEM), also funded by the MDG Achievement Fund, MOLSAEO developed a National Action Plan (NAP) on Youth Employment (2010–2013) which targets around 64,000 individuals aged between 15 and 29 years old. The NAP envisaged 44 policy options to enable youth employment and school-to work transition. The programme will cost around 17 ml USD and the Government of Albania is providing about 60 percent of the budget. The UN (ILO, IOM, UNDP and UNICEF) facilitated the development of several tools to support activation and labour market integration of young people, including publication of booklets and materials for career guidance, as well as counselling and orientation targeting youth in both urban and rural areas. Training materials on self-employment for young people and Youths’ Rights at Work were adapted to the Albanian context.

In Shkodra and Kukes youth-friendly employment service centres were established within the Regional Employment Offices and offer livelihood- and skills-training for young workers. In April 2011, the Kukes Region Employment Board launched, under the aegis of the Ministry of Labour and with YEM support, the 2011 Territorial Employment Pact for Youth. The Pact is an institutional innovation based on negotiated planning, where more than 40 public and private actors at national and local level assume complementary and inter-connected roles and responsibilities in view of employment objectives. It introduces six service lines to facilitate employment generation and transition to formalization of young workers in the Kukes Region. It will impact around 1,000 people in the Region and 6–8,000 at the national level.

Within the public private partnership framework established with YEM support, work-training programmes are being implemented by the National Employment Service and its regional and local branches, the Albanian–British Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ABCCI) and selected private enterprises. An on-line mapping tool of recent Albanian graduates abroad was designed and launched in July 2010 and the Albanian Students Abroad Network continued to work closely with ABCCI to identify vacancies in the private sector for Albanian graduates abroad to participate in an internship.
