This article examines the relationship between youth, work and education in Brazil. It is viewed against the backdrop of the recent mass protests calling for better living conditions, in which young people played a leading role. The paper takes a look at various aspects of youth at a time of uncertainty and growing competitiveness, where challenges are ever greater and where the need for young people to master new skills and abilities is paramount. After discussing the constraints and prospects of the Brazilian educational situation, as well as some of the public policies directed to the youth sector, the article concludes that despite significant strides in the educational sphere, much remains to be done for the youth of Brazil.
