 The educational quality of young people leaves to be desired and announces an unsatisfying prospect for the added value of long-term sustainable growth of the country.

According to the data of the Albanian State Statistics in 2018, the young people aged from 15 to 29, who were neither employed nor attending school or any professional training, constituted about 28.6% of total of the Albanian youth.

In this group, 36.6% of young people were unemployed. The rest are out of the labour market because they are discouraged (11.7%), by fulfilling family responsibilities (22.0%) or because of other reasons (29.6%).

Among young people who are neither employed in school or in vocational training by gender and their status in the labor market, men are more active in the market than women (50.4% of men are looking for a job and are willing to work, while in women this percentage is 25.7%).

Albanian youth are characterized by a high level of laziness. According to a study conducted by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in Tirana, they spend on average every day, 2.3 hours watching television and 3.9 hours online. But these are not the only activities. The cafes occupy a considerable part of the life of the Albanian youth. According to the study, published recently, half of the respondents often spend their free time attending cafes and bars, while 21% do so occasionally.

A strong factor in this issue is, of course, the economic status of young people: 8% of young people from the poorest economically unlucky, compared to the national average, which is only 1%, the FES study cites.

The gender is the main factor that determines the selection of youth activities: the boys play video games, come out more often and practice sports, while girls mostly read books.

The spending of the free time by young people is important because shows other elements of their lives as well as plans for the future. The most common activities that teenagers often do at leisure, every day or several times a week are listening to music (85% do this very often), going out with friends (70% doing too often), watching of films (72%), relaxation and some time with their family (92% do this quite often).
