What are the differences between work and working when used as nouns?

For example:

Advocates claim that work/working brings a lot of benefits for young people.

Which one is correct? I have searched in a dictionary but they are defined with nearly the same meaning.

It's the difference between saying:

Having something to do has a lot of benefits for young people.

and

The act of doing something has a lot of benefits for young people.

The first corresponds to work, the second to working.
