National Youth Week 2016 – Young People and Unpaid Work

With youth unemployment more than double the rate of the general population, more and more young people are engaging in unpaid work in the hope of making the transition into paid employment. Raising awareness of unpaid work is part of the conversation, but addressing unemployment and finding solutions that support young people into paid work is another.


As part of the National Youth Week 2016 calendar, Interns Australia participated in a panel on the solutions to the problems – a key part of moving the dialogue forward. With academics, lawyers and representatives of some of the industries where unpaid work is the most prevalent, the event was oversubscribed – evidence of how significant the challenge is and the growing interest in it.
