      The article presents the experiences of social in-/ exclusion of young people during long-term unemployment according to age and education level. The qualitative research used focus groups that encompassed 21 unemployed young people in the Ljubljana area between 19 and 26 years of age. These young people with different levels of education and of different ages emphasize both individual and in particular systemic difficulties that for them present significant obstacles in entering the workforce and choosing desired biographical paths. The results show that the assistance and support strategies for helping young people in the position of unemployment should be directed towards establishing a balance between different areas in an individual’s life and in this way mitigating the risks of individual transitions into adulthood and employment.
