It will take some time to see improvements in your youth squad. On the maximum investment level (€20k), it will take the following amount of time to rise to the next level

Level Change Time
Disastrous to Wretched 1 week
Wretched to Poor 1 week
Poor to Weak 1-2 week
Weak to Inadequate 2 weeks
Inadequate to Passable 3-4 weeks
Passable to Solid 5-6 weeks
Solid to Excellent 1 season (16 weeks)

Many small investments are more efficient than a few large ones. In other words, it's wise to make long-term plans - if you're willing to invest a lot of future funds into increasing youth player activities, large investments can be a way to get results quickly. If you want to build up a decent structure gradually, without spending too much money, make a small investment each week, but note that with minimum investment (€5k), your squad will only rise to inadequate, and with medium investment (€10k), the squad will not improve beyond passable.

If you don't make sure of regular funding, the structure will deteriorate quite rapidly. Once the level of the youth squad has dropped, it will take a long time to raise it again.

Dropping your YS investment from maximum investment to 0 will cause your YS to deteriorate by one level per week.

If you then decide to start re-investing, you'll find that increasing the levels takes just as long second time around as it did the first.
