Huge Problems For Disconnected Young People in Germany

There are 130,000 "disconnected" young people between the ages 17 and 19 living in Germany. And this percentage is on the rise. Disconnected youths do not receive sufficient financial and emotional support from their families, do not attend school, do not work and do not have lasting friendships. This causes huge problems for these teenagers and the society. Many disconnected youths do not graduate from school or complete an apprenticeship. They have many difficulties in learning the rules of society, and therefore face the danger of being permanently excluded. These are the findings of a study conducted by the Centre for European Economic Research (ZEW) in Mannheim. The study analyses the extent and the most important reasons for youth disconnectedness in Germany. read more
