Building a Creative Nation, led by skills body Creative and Cultural Skills, is calling on the UK's 106,700 creative firms to recruit a young person to help reach the target.
The Scottish leg of the campaign was launched at Edinburgh's National Galleries of Scotland with Youth Employment Minister Angela Constance and Pauline Tambling, joint chief executive of Creative and Cultural Skills.
A key aim of the campaign is to encourage employers in fashion, art, film and music to sign up to the fair access principle in order to make the creative industries more accessible and to commit to fair and sustainable recruitment practice.
It will work with businesses and further education colleges such as Glasgow Kelvin College and City of Glasgow College.
Ms Tambling said: "We are passionate about making jobs in our sector accessible to all and we believe that by achieving this, we can maximise the potential of the country's creative and cultural industries.
"We're looking to build upon the work that our supporters have been doing to help young people into work across the creative industries, which has already achieved so much."
Doug Richard, chairman of Building a Creative Nation, said: "A huge part of this campaign is about providing young people with fair opportunities. As author of the government-commissioned Richard Review of Apprenticeships, I firmly believe that no single way of learning suits everyone.
"Our young people are best prepared by learning on the job, a process that also provides employers with unparalleled access to talent."
