This chapter examines the mechanisms for promoting the effects of youth economic experience, usually via employment. Since many, though not all youth social entrepreneurship activities include youth acting within “a job,” a more thorough investigation of the research supporting economic change for young people will equip the reader with frames within which to think about employment. Furthermore, there is an expected effect on community assets through youth social entrepreneurship, often an additional economic asset within which an enterprise operates. In this chapter, the reader will encounter a systems perspective about school-to-work efforts, considering how the youth social entrepreneurship paradigm dovetails with this traditional body of practice and what lessons can be learned. With an overall consideration of how human capital development impacts broader social system, this chapter situates youth social entrepreneurship as one approach to changing communities through individual economic improvement and future employment trajectory.
