With 35.8% of the population below age 15, and youth (aged 12-30) accounting for more than one-third of the population, Jordan is a youthful country and will remain so in the years to come. Young Jordanians face multiple and interconnected challenges which require a comprehensive approach to youth challenges. The Youth Well-Being Policy Review of Jordan aims to support the government in assessing the situation of the country’s youth and to provide policy recommendations. Chapter 1 provides an in-depth analysis of the situation of Jordanian youth in the areas of health, education, employment and civic participation. Chapter 2 describes key youth policies and programmes in Jordan, and discusses the challenges of the current institutional framework for youth policy making and implementation. Chapter 3 assesses youth labour market outcomes and the potential of technical and vocational education and training (TVET). Chapter 4 explores paths and skills formation for active youth citizenship in Jordan
