This chapter engages a more inclusive view of youth social entrepreneurship because it explores the practices of youth-focused social entrepreneurship outside of the United States. This chapter situates the youth social entrepreneurship model within the informal economy that has existed in every geographic context across human history. Then the chapter embarks on descriptions of sample organizations in countries other than the United States that aim to promote social entrepreneurship. These examples are categorized by region and differentiated by whether they exist within developed or developing countries. Last, the chapter identifies examples of international efforts that cross borders to promote social entrepreneurship among youth.

Keywords:   informal economy, social business, youth entrepreneurs, impact hubs, informal sector, developing countries
