Employment minister Mark Hoban has launched the Youth Contract: Works for Me campaign and challenged businesses to help get more young people into work.
Throughout the next two weeks, the scheme will be advertised on radio and in print, as officials aim to raise awareness of the benefits of taking part.
Businesses which employ a young person in conjunction with the programme may get a payment of up to £2,275.
Mr Hoban said: "With extra work experience places and wage incentives we're giving young people the skills they need to find work and cutting costs for business to employ them."
He added businesses of all shapes and sizes should give a young person a chance to showcase what they are capable of.
