In 2018, a consortium of 11 Erasmus+/Youth National Agencies (NAs) and 4 SALTO-YOUTH Resource Centres decided to take a new approach to support employability and entrepreneurship amongst young people and professionals. They, therefore, launched the Youth@Work Strategic Partnership on Youth Employability and Entrepreneurship, with the aim to better address these areas by working collaboratively, based on a common strategy.

Youth@Work is the alliance of the NAs of Italy (the leading NA), Cyprus, North Macedonia, Turkiye, Greece, Hungary, Malta, Poland, Spain, and Finland, as well as SALTO-YOUTH South East Europe, Eastern Europe and Caucasus and Training and Cooperation Resource Centres.
