    Youth unemployment is becoming a major social problem, which is associated with the question of perspective of young generation, which will subsequently bore the burden of social development. For young people there are few employment opportunities on the labour market. The thesis deals with the specific situation of young people (especially young women and young people with lower education) on the labour market in Slovenia and on the labour market in Koroška region, as evidenced by the data of traditionally higher youth unemployment rates than the average for the entire population. The theoretical part presents the factors that affect the status of youth on the general market, particularly on the labour market in Koroška region. In addition to the causes of youth unemployment, are also described the effects of unemployment on young people and their coping strategies with the situation of unemployment. In this context, it represents an aspect of social exclusion and draws attention to the role and place of social pedagogy in this area. The empirical part presents qualitative research, which aimed to explore how the unemployment affects other spheres of life of young long-term unemployed in the Koroška region, and also how they cope with the experience of long-term unemployment. And yet, how they understand their current life situation and think about their own future. As found, the fundamental problem of the young unemployed in the region, is that on the labour market there are no new employments. Therefore they see underground economy as a solution and alternative to regular employment.
