This week NFTE CEO Amy Rosen is in Davos, Switzerland at the 2014 World Economic Forum (WEF). WEF brings together world leaders to discuss and think through economic issues affecting the world.  Amy is on the ground meeting key thought-leaders in business, academia and government to find solutions to a quickly rising problem: global youth unemployment. At the current worldwide rate of economic and population growth, there simply won’t be enough jobs for young people in the world in the coming years. Amy is Vice-Chair of the Global Agenda Council on Youth Unemployment at WEF, and will be tackling this issue head-on throughout the week.

Read Amy’s Forbes blog on her trip to Davos. Amy also contributed an op-ed to Quartz about the youth unemployment crisis.  

At Davos, Amy spoke to the Huffington Post about the "Holy Smokes" moment that could help reduce youth unemployment:
