Politicians and business leaders have met at the Lysaght Institute in Newport to discuss how to tackle youth unemployment.
It aims to get employers making decisions on how to offer more work experience, internship and apprenticeship opportunities for young people.
It's the first such "Jobs Summit for Wales."
The First Minister and Welsh Secretary David Jones will today highlight what more they feel can be done to get young people into employment.
At the first Jobs Summit for Wales, a number of businesses and organisations from across Wales have been invited to discuss how to offer more work experience, internships and apprenticeship opportunities for young people.
Recent figures show that the number of people between the age of 16-24 who weren't employed in Wales between October 2011 and September 2012 stood at 51,000. This has stayed roughly the same since 2009.
