Rapid societal changes have led our country to focus on the issue of the position of young people in our social welfare system. In the period after the Second World War, youth, understood as the period between the end of mandatory schooling and entry into the workforce, was short-lived.
Today, career paths are becoming less and less certain for young people. The number of years spent in education has increased, and entry into the labour market occurs later and is often more difficult, particularly for young people without qualifications.
In this new era, young people may find themselves in a wide variety of situations, which are not sufficiently taken into account in our social welfare system, as the length of this period and the changes that take place vary between individuals. As a result, it has become more difficult for young people to achieve independence.
