Summary/Abstract: In the era of aging process in the European Union, young people are a valuable part of the workforce. However, that group can be treated as vulnerable in the labour market as the indicators for the youths are much worse than for the average population. Moreover, the EU countries do not present the homogeneous situation concerning labour market situation of young people. It depends on labour demand potential which creates the vacancies for the youths and the labour market policy to support labour supply. The diversification of youths situation can also obtain regional dimension. Labour market performance of that group depends on the technical and social infrastructure provided by local authorities as well as regional demand on youths labour. The main aim of the paper is to present the diversification of young people situation in the EU in terms of labour market indicators at national and regional levels. The analysis on the national level was conducted by presenting the situation in the EU countries. The analysis on regional level was limited to introduction of labour market indicators of Polish voivodeships. The undertaken research method was critical analysis of literature as well as desk research of secondary sources like research reports and analysis of statistical data from Eurostat databases.
