Abstract Young people, who are the fundamental asset of our economies and societies across the world, face a real and increasing difficulties in finding a decent job with each day. Three additional merging factors are worsening the youth employment crisis even further, causing challenges while transiting to decent jobs, namely (i) numbers of discouraged youth, in other words, young people, who are neither in education nor in employment or training (NEETs) are increasing, (ii) unemployment among university graduates of tertiary education in general are rising and (iii) potential NEET group students, especially in the 1st year, who, apart from reduced study fees, require extra motivation and moral support from educators. The goal of the paper is to make young people NEET problem analysis in order to understand their motivation to engage in distance learning process. The first insurance against unemployment is quality education and training. Distance learning is a way to promote reintegrating young people into the labour market and education too.
