Summary/Abstract: This paper presents youth’s situation at the labour market in Bulgaria and existing opportunities for transition to employment. The attention is focussed on increased vulnerability of youth employment in the current period of the crisis and the specific problems faced by young people. From this point of view, the author examines social protection of young people in the field of education and through active and passive policies at the labour market. Requirements for changes are reviewed in the context of the current problems of young people in Bulgaria in terms of labour and social realization, but also in accordance with the strategic documents of the European Commission and the Bulgarian government. Grounds are given for application of an integrated policies approach in favour of young people.
