The Shrimpers are short of goalkeeping cover after Bart Griemink suffered a long-term knee injury.
Young is expected to play in Southend's reserve game on Tuesday and, should he impress, would join up with the first-team squad as cover to Darryl Flahaven.
"Jamie comes very highly rated so it gives us the chance to see him in action," coach Paul Brush told Southend's official website.
Young has spent the majority of this season with League Two side Rushden & Diamonds as well as making one substitute appearance for Reading.
