10. September 2018

The Digital Jobs for Youth: Focus on Young Women in the Digital Economy flagship report is primarily intended to provide operational recommendations for the design and implementation of gender-inclusive digital jobs interventions for youth. Using a newly developed digital jobs typology, the report will identify drivers of demand across various categories of digital work. The report will then extract lessons learned in overcoming supply and demand‐side barriers to youth digital employment, based on past and ongoing programs implemented by Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) coalition members. In doing so, the report will identify design elements and strategies that would be especially helpful in connecting young women to the digital economy. Finally, this report will provide recommendations for the design and implementation of gender-inclusive digital jobs programs for youth. Findings from this report are meant to provide inputs to the design and implementation of gender-focused digital job pilots to be launched by S4YE.
