Money Matters: Training young workers of tomorrow in Indonesia

Youth unemployment is increasingly linked to low skills and inadequate preparation for the labor market. Vocational training programs are an important tool for young people to invest in the skills they need to compete for jobs. These programs have led to significant improvement in employment, earnings and other non-market outcomes for youth in low and middle income countries. It is essential to understand why young people may fail to pursue and complete market relevant training to design better policies in the future.

As part of the Skills to Succeed’s program operational research agenda, a randomized controlled study was done in Indonesia to assess how cost influences young people’s participation in vocational training.
