Youngsters need to be kept on track in the search for jobs into their mid-20s, the Wales Audit Office says.
A report into young people not in education, employment or training (Neet) said help for 19-24 year olds was not as good as for 16-18 year olds.
The Wales Audit Office (WAO) urged the Welsh government to get the best value from £200m spent on Neets in a year.
Deputy skills minister Ken Skates said more work would be done to share best practice and track progress of schemes.
