Linking Young Adults to Microbusiness: A Supplement Guide 2017

Executive Summary

In AEO’s earlier report, “Linking Young Adults to Microbusiness,” published in spring of 2016, the case was made for expeditious attention to creation of alternative economic pathways for youth who are at risk of quitting their education programs, underemployed, or already disconnected from work and school. In this second phase, we seek to identify the highest potential opportunities to significantly increase the odds of success for youth ages 15–24, through an entrepreneurial training strategy. An investigation of best practices, follow-up with program providers, interviews, and focus groups with youth all contributed to the new insights offered in this report.
